FRIDAY MUSIC: Marty Stuart, by JD

Country music star Marty Stuart was something of a child prodigy being invited to play mandolin in Lester Flatt's band when he was just thirteen. After a spell playing for Johnny Cash he then began a career as a solo artist. Currently he has a band called the Fabulous Superlatives and it is no exaggeration to say the band lives up to that rather grandiose name!

A slightly different format for this week's music with the first video being a radio concert by the band plus an interview with Stuart (approx 24 minutes) and the final video is also longer than usual ( about 23 minutes) with Stuart telling the story of his musical journey which, of course, has not yet ended!
