Walks the Strings and Even Sings

Walks the Strings and Even Sings

Kentucky-born Eddie Pennington echoes the sound of his mentor Mose Rager and parallels that of Chet Atkins, a fellow disciple of the all-American Kentucky thumbpicking known as Travis-style guitar, made famous by Merle Travis. In between dazzling displays of skill on favorite show-off tunes like "John’s Smoke Turns Blue" and "Over the Rainbow," the former Hazard County coroner unleashes his irrepressible tongue-in-cheek humor on tracks such as "Fertile Liza," "The Pig Got Up," and "Information Please." Pennington toured nationally as a member of the "Masters of the Steel String Guitar," showcased at the Kennedy Center and the Barns of Wolf Trap, and received the prestigious National Heritage Fellowship in recognition of his extraordinary artistry.
