Sam Bush Premieres Video Series

by Allison Taich

17 November 2009

 

Grammy Award winning multi-instrumentalist Sam Bush (of New Grass Revival) recently launched an internet video series, SBTV (Sam Bush TV). The idea for SBTV came in response to the overwhelming popularity of Bush’s previous series, “Ask Sam Anything”. The show currently boasts three episodes, featuring behind the scenes footage of Bush’s personal life and music, and became public on 20 October, 2009, the same day Bush’s self-produced Circles Around Me was released.

The new album includes collaborations from bluegrass greats Del McCoury, Edgar Meyer, Jerry Douglas and the Sam Bush Band. The real treat on the album is a demo with Courtney Johnson, co-founder of New Grass Revival, who passed away 13 years ago. The recently discovered demo dates back to 1976.
