Grant Gordy – “Prelude to a Kiss”

Grant Gordy playing this exquisite version of Duke Ellington’s “Prelude to a Kiss” had to be one of the biggest surprises we filmed during Wintergrass 2017. Yes, we knew Grant can play virtually anything but it was still a nice break from all the great bluegrass.

On this tune, Gordy turns once again to his trusty 1944 Martin 000-18 (read a bit about it in our interview with Gordy here). And be on the lookout for a lengthy feature on Gordy and his playing in mid-2017 in our magazine, penned by Steve Yarbrough.
