It was a marriage made in heaven, at least for those of us who love the slide in all its forms. The king of the slide guitar meets the queen of the dobro, with no other accompaniment.

Sonny Landreth, from the Lafayette, Louisiana area, has played with a veritable who’s-who of rock and blues guitarists – from Mark Knopfler to Eric Johnson – who appear throughout several of his albums. His command of the slide guitar is like no other. Using a series of guitars, tuned to different keys, he can play both complex melodies and rhythms. This is done while achieving different sounds by picking both ahead of and behind his left hand, which is alternating between perfectly pitched slide positions and using the other fingers as well as any blues guitarist.

Cindy Cashdollar, originally from a little south of here in Woodstock, has played with her own share of luminaries, including Levon Helm and Bob Dylan. Along the way, she has earned five Grammy Awards.
