One of the most respected and accomplished instrumentalists in popular music, Grammy-winning John Jorgenson is known for his blistering guitar and mandolin licks and mastery of a broad musical palette. Jorgenson co-founded country-rock's pioneering Desert Rose Band, spent more than half a decade in Elton John's touring band, and led the group of country-guitar wizards known as the Hellecasters. He has collaborated with Earl Scruggs, Bonnie Raitt, Elton John, Luciano Pavarotti, Bob Dylan, and played with Bela Fleck, Sam Bush, Jim and Jesse, David Grisman, and many others. Jorgenson's newly formed bluegrass project reunites him with fellow Desert Rose bandmate (and former Dillard) Herb Pedersen, revered Nashville singer-songwriter and guitarist John Randall, and Ricky Skaggs cohort Mark Fain on bass.
