The one-of-a-kind road trip documentary continues with the fiddle playing of Kilby Spencer.

In Boone, North Carolina, the Bens hear from fiddle player Kilby Spencer who takes us through his deep family roots in the music of the region. He and Trevor McKenzie lay down a version of "Paddy on the Turnpike" learned from Johnny Miller. Check out the entire 2 Guys Named Ben series on The Roots Channel!
