Podcast 378: Woody Platt

For over 20 years, Woody Platt served as a guitarist in the Steep Canyon Rangers. During that time, the band became one of the highest profile acts in bluegrass music and accompanied Steve Martin on innumerable dates.

Earlier this year, Woody announced his retirement from the band. On this week’s FJ Podcast, we talk to the musician about how he came to that decision, what projects he’s currently focused on, his life as a fly fish guide, and some of the many life and stage lessons he learned from Steve Martin.
