Jim & Jesse, Flatt & Scruggs, Sonny & Bobby Osborne. Let us now add to the list, Johnson & Lester! Mark Johnson has created a completely new banjo art form called “Clawgrass.” Emory Lester, a master mandolin player and multi-instrumentalist, is a perfect, equal, counterpart and together they are absolutely bleeding with talent. We can assure you that you have never heard a duet like this before!
