Grammy award winning musician Jerry Douglas joins us from the Crown of the Continent Guitar Festival and Workshop to talk with MTPR's Michael Marsolek.

"I'm having a wonderful time here in the Flathead," Douglas says. "I've been hanging out with Mike Stern, and Sonny Landreth is my next door neighbor. Albert Lee is here, and David Lindley, you know, everybody. It's such a wonderful place to hang out. As a guitar player, there couldn't be a better place to be on earth right now."
