Thread Name: The Evolution of Country Fingerpicking
Subject: RE: The Evolution of Country Fingerpicking
Ike Everly was a featured performer at the University of Chicago Folk Festival one year. He was truly amazing. He also participated in the free workshops that festival holds in Ida Noyes Hall on Saturday and Sunday. It was really a treat.

There was a PBS television special documenting the Everly Brothers career and their reunion concert at Royal Albert Hall. I taped the original broadcast but I see it's still available as a DVD. The program includes a very short clip of Ike in a performance and, a visit with an aging Mose Rager. As I recall, Mose plays ‘Back Water Blues’ in the Kentucky Thumb Pick style he's known for.

There are other videos of Travis and Atkins, some with clips of Rager and Everly, at Stefan Grossman's Guitar Workshop and probably other places too. Perhaps Camsco can supply them as well.
