EKN Goes Country

First we have Shania Twain and Dolly Parton joining forces with Alison Krauss and Union Station on Coat Of Many Colours:

I imagine Joe from Vegas will enjoy this next one. Apparently the Country Sisters are a Czech outfit (with check outfits....) From their website they seem to have played Nashville but I don't know if they've ever been to Britain.

Here they are doing the Kershaw brothers' Cajun classic Diggy Liggy Lo:

The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band may be less decorative (this clip is sound only in any case) but their version is great too and was my introduction to the song:

More fun from the Dirt Band back in the early days:

And here is their banjo player John McEuen doing the marvellous Mountain Whippoorwill:

Finally, here's Steve Martin (who is a hell of a good banjo player - at least as good as he is a comedian) with the Muppets(!) doing Duelling Banjos
