My brother and I were just watching the MTV talent show “Amazingness,” and one of the acts was a guy clapping his hands insanely fast while accompanying musicians played fiddle and bass fiddle. I couldn’t quite place where I had seen the guy before, so I looked him up. Sure enough, Eli Bishop is a fiddle player I saw at the New Monday show (traditional country and bluegrass) at Nashville’s Station Inn. Here’s a clip of him playing fiddle with Ashley Campbell playing banjo and here’s the hand clapping
In other news, I see that the Eleven Hundred Springs album is listed for 1/16/18 on Amazon. I saw them a few months ago. This is good Texas honky tonk music.
