David Grier: “Have You Ever Been to England?”
 
The flatpicking master plays one of his original tunes during the IBMA World of Bluegrass Festival.

We had a great time attending the IBMA World of Bluegrass Conference and Festival in September, taking in scores of showcases and concerts, sitting in on insightful sessions and discussions about the business of bluegrass, and witnessing some stellar spontaneous moments with talented players. This video is an example of the latter, with flatpicking legend David Grier playing his tune “Have You Ever Been to England?,” which he has recorded on his albums Hootenany and Live at the Linda. This run-through of the tune clearly shows why he is one of the most creative and well-respected guitarists in the bluegrass community.
