Friday Folk Flashback

“Shove The Pig’s Foot (A Little Closer to the Fire)” – Bruce Molsky with Tim O’Brien, Aly Bain, John McCustker, Jerry Douglas, Dirk Powell, Mike McGoldrick, Phil Cunningham, Donald Shaw, Russ Barenberg, John Doyle, Todd Parks, Pat McInerney and James McIntosh

I’ve been playing tune at a few jams recently (with the intention of eventually learning it properly) and it’s so catchy! Just had to share the Transatlantic Sessions version just because of all of the amazing musos on this track.
