Playlist: The Moonshine Show - 22 February 2009

Today, we spent some time celebrating Ralph Stanley and Pete Wernick's birthday -- both of them were born on February 25th: a good day for banjo players apparently. We also played some Flatt & Scruggs, since today is the 40th anniversary of their final appearance together. And we played this year's Grammy-award winner in the bluegrass category (Ricky Skaggs' Honoring the Fathers of Bluegrass: Tribute to 1946 and 1947) and also the first-ever winner in the category (Bill Monroe's Southern Flavor).
