Lou Reid Discusses Joining Seldom Scene

Bluegrass legends The Seldom Scene reunited with former members to create the Smithsonian Folkways album Long Time... Seldom Scene. Here, singer and mandolin player Lou Reid talks with original member Ben Eldridge about joining the legendary bluegrass band twice—the first time in 1986, then for good in 1997. Reid has played with several other important acts, including Quicksilver, the Rickey Skaggs Band, Vince Gill, and Carolina.
