Taped in December 2002 at the R.J. Reynolds Auditorium in Winston-Salem, NC, this PBS concert special immortalizes the historic teaming of three legendary bluegrass performers: Earl Scruggs on banjo, Doc Watson on guitar, and Ricky Skaggs on mandolin. The trio's repertoire is highlighted by such selections as "What Would You Give?," "Foggy Mountain Top," and "Feast Here Tonight." Also on hand is guest star Alison Krauss, performing the traditional ballad "Down in the Valley." The Three Pickers: Legends of American Music originally aired as an episode of the public-TV anthology Great Performances.

Caught this October 2004 rerun, after calling the attention of a blue-grass aficianado friend to it. As sad as the lyrics of some songs are, there is such an infectious, upbeat vibe to the music that I could easily empathize with the couple, shown engaging in an impromptu dance, with the abandon of a performance in the privacy of their own living room. Their is a purity both in the music, and the performance here, that is incredibly refreshing in this day of over-engineered recordings.
