Nygaard, Gilchrist, Manning, and Walsh: “Long Journey Home”
 
Four bluegrass masters and Peghead Nation instructors play a classic song during their one-night stand in Fairfax, California.
By: Dan Gabel
May 4, 2015

This was one impressive pick-up band. Peghead Nation co-founder and instructor Scott Nygaard hosts a monthly bluegrass night in his hometown of Fairfax, California, and in April he was joined by three other Peghead Nation instructors – Joe Walsh (who was in town shooting video for his Advancing Mandolinist course) on mandolin, Sharon Gilchrist on bass and mandolin, and Chad Manning on fiddle. This video of their spin through the classic “Long Journey Home” gives you an example of the rousing night of string band music that they came up with. It was inspiring to watch Joe and Chad, who hadn’t really performed together before, trading solos and generally enjoying each other’s playing, and to see the four top-notch players having so much fun together.

You can learn some of what all of these folks have to teach you in their Peghead Nation courses. Check out Joe’s Advancing Mandolinist course, Scott’s Flatpicking Guitar and Weekly Guitar Workout courses, Sharon’s Beginning Mandolin course, and Chad’s Bluegrass Fiddle and Beginning/Intermediate Fiddle courses.
