Topic: Young Guns
I hope this becomes a popular thread as there are an increasing number of younger musicians carving a name for themselves.
Today I'll start things off with two guys I'd love to hear on record together, Billy Strings and Marcus King.
The two videos were recorded live at a guitar shop in Nashville where they're playing a 1930's Martin six string and a '54 Fender Telecaster. Both guitars go for about $100K and have the prices attached to the necks in the songs.
First up is a nice cover of Merle Haggard's I'm a Lonesome Fugitive" that features Marcus on vocals and the second is Billy doing vocals on George Gershwin's "Summertime".
I've been listening to Marcus King a lot lately and love his interplay with the flat picking genius of Billy Strings. These guys are tremendously talented.
