Jerry Douglas

Jerry Douglas is widely renowned as perhaps the finest Dobro player in contemporary acoustic music. His main foundation is bluegrass, but Douglas is an eclectic whose tastes run toward jazz, blues, folk, and straight-ahead country as well, and he's equally capable of appealing to bluegrass aficionados or new agers with a taste for instrumental roots music. What's more, his progressive sensibility as a composer has earned him comparisons to likeminded virtuosos Béla Fleck and David Grisman. Douglas was born in Warren, Ohio in 1956, and began playing the Dobro at age eight with encouragement from his father, who was also a bluegrass musician. By his teen years, Douglas was already a member of his father's band, and his playing was especially influenced by Josh Graves of Flatt & Scruggs' Foggy Mountain Boys. Douglas was discovered at a festival by the Country Gentlemen, who took him on tour with them for the rest of the summer and later brought him into the recording studio. From there, Douglas established himself as a hugely in-demand session musician; during the latter half of the '70s, he worked with the likes of J.D. Crowe & the New South, David Grisman, Ricky Skaggs, Doyle Lawson, and Tony Rice. Additionally, Douglas released his debut album, Fluxology, on Rounder in 1979; he followed it three years later with Fluxedo, which like its predecessor stuck relatively close to traditional (albeit sometimes jazzy) bluegrass.

During the early '80s, Douglas continued his session career with even greater success, adding Emmylou Harris, Béla Fleck, the Whites, and Peter Rowan to his list of credits. He returned to his solo career with 1986's Under the Wire on Sugar Hill, which reflected his interest in the progressive new-acoustic (or "newgrass") movement. He subsequently signed with MCA, where he issued Changing Channels (1987) and the smoother, strongly jazz-influenced Plant Early (1989). More session work for increasingly prominent artists brought him into the '90s, with names like Alison Krauss, Del McCoury, Garth Brooks, Trisha Yearwood, Randy Travis, Clint Black, Patty Loveless, Suzy Bogguss, Reba McEntire, Kathy Mattea, and Dolly Parton on his résumé. In 1992, he returned to Sugar Hill for the more traditional bluegrass outing Slide Rule, which many critics ranked among his finest recordings. The following year brought the all-instrumental Skip, Hop & Wobble, a trio recording with Russ Barenberg and Edgar Meyer. In 1994, Douglas contributed to the Grammy-winning compilation Great Dobro Sessions, and cut a duo album with Peter Rowan, Yonder, in 1996. True to its title, 1998's Restless on the Farm was a return to Douglas' freewheeling eclecticism, which continued on 2002's Lookout for Hope. Best Kept Secret arrived in September of 2005. In 2008 he recorded the musically adventurous Glide, and followed it with a Christmas album entitled Jerry Christmas in 2009. In 2010 he contributed to Southern Filibuster: The Songs of Tut Taylor, a various-artists compilation acknowledging the far-reaching influence of Taylor on the modern Dobro sound. ~ Steve Huey, Rovi

Great job. but I wish they could have had Arty on this version, too.

Whoever is mistaking Jerry Douglas with Marcus Mumford is uneducated. Mumford is incredibly talented but he will never be on the instrumental level of Jerry Douglas. He is and, in my mind, will be the best dobro player ever, hands down.

Don't do the crush things, they don't freaking work
Yes, Mumford and Sons did a collaboratio n with Jerry Douglas and Paul Simon.
1.) Kiss your left hand
2.) Say your crushes name
3.) Close your hand
4.) Pick a school day
5.) Say your name
6.) Post this on fifteen more songs and on the day you said you will be asked out by your crush
This is Marcus Mumford or I am hallucinatin g .
Uh this is definitely Marcus Mumford.
As a gal from Jerry Douglas's home state of Ohio, I can tell you the lead singer's accent is definitely not midwestern. It is most definitely Marcus Mumford. Glad others explained that it's Douglas playing the dobro and Mumford and Sons doing the rest.
First of all, Jerry Douglas doesn't sing. He plays the dobro. That is Marcus Mumford. Jerry Douglas, Paul Simon, and Mumford and Sons collaborated to bring this old song back to life. They did a good job, huh?! :)
He sounds so much like marcus mumford the lead singer of mumford and sons
gmanswimmer
Don't read this caus it's really scary it actually works you will be kissed on the next possible Friday by the love of your life to morrow wil be the best day of your life how ever if you don't post This in the you will die in 2 days now yo started treading so don stop this is so scary iPod it in the next 143 minutes when done press f6 your lovers name will appear in big black letter this is scary this will work
Its because it is mumford and sons he just showed his own album, its not Pandora fault
This is rubbish
amcelraft
It is Jerry Douglas ft. Mumford and son, Jerry Douglas is simply playing the Dobro. It is the metallic sounding guitar that is absent from other M&S songs.
I was incredibly surprised to find out this wasn't Mumford and Sons
His voice kinda reminds me of the lead singer from Mumford and sons

1 kiss ur left hand
2 say ur crushes name
3 close ur hand
4 say ur name
5 pick a school day
6 post this on 15 songs & ur crush will ask u out on the day u picked

This isn't fake. If you copy and paste this on ten comments in the next ten minutes you will have the best day of your life tomorrow. You will either get kissed or asked out. If you break the chain you will see a little dead girl in your room tonight. In the next 53 minutes someone will say I love you or I'm sorry
I like this song, but his voice sounds familiar....
Jerry's one of my favorite musicians in any genre. Been listening to him since the early 80s. His playing can make me cry.
Don't read this because it actually works. You will be kissed on the nearest Friday by the love of your life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. However if you don't post this you will die in 2 days. Now you started reading this so don't stop. This is so scary put this on at least 5 songs in the next 143 minutes. When done press f6 and your lovers name will appear on the screen in big letters this is so scary because it actually works

If we wanna get technical, it's Simon and Garfunkel's song.
ryanheart93
It's Douglas's arrangement, and Mumford included it on their Babel album, giving Douglas credit for the song, arrgmt, etc.
Yeah this is Mumford and sons. It's on their cd "Babel"
oscarthegrou c h 7 8
It features mumford and sons. They are in it. That's why it sounds so much like them.
My mind was just blown because I thought for sure it was Mumford and Sons!

Thought it was Marcus I know my husbands voice <3
I knew something was weird when I heard mumfords voice but I saw the comments and smiled.
It's Jerry Douglas playing and back up if I'm not mistaking. But Marcus Mumford is singing this.

That's Jerry Douglas playing the guitar, and Mumford singing. It was on Jerry's album, so no slacking here ;)
...When Pandora slacks....
Wow people seem to be clueless on who is singing and who the composer is
daftmau5city
I wish there was a clean version of The Boxer.
It would be my favorite secular song if it didn't use the w word...
