Happy Birthday Edgar!

Today is virtuoso double bassist, composer, and MacArthur Genius Grant award winner Edgar Meyer’s 49th birthday. Not only can this guy play a MEAN double bass, but he can do so in any genre you care to name. I know him best through his bluegrass connections – you may as well since tunes from his Appalachia Waltz CD get featured on commercials and Ken Burns documentaries. Go HERE for his site where you can hear him play and find more information.
