Routes to Roots II: Wayne and Kristin Scott Benson

Wow!  Kristin Scott Bensen is easily one of my favorite banjo players, The second Grascals CD I reviewed, "The Famous Lefty Flynn", was Kristin Scott Benson's first CD with the Grascals. I thought she really gave them a boost. She could flat out play, I mean, she had something special that was talent personified.  She just could  things I had not heard before. With skilled Danny Roberts at the other end, they trade off musical lines well.

   I did not know her husband was a very skilled mandolin player, I was familiar with the group, "Third Tyme Out", but not with Wayne. Way to go Ted!
