This video features highlights from the Telluride Bluegrass Festival circa 1979-80. The lineup is stellar; the performances, amazing.
- Norman and Nancy Blake tearing through "O.B.C. #3."
- Doc Watson, Dan Crary, and Norman Blake picking "Black Mountain Rag" with Sam Bush on fiddle.
- Peter Rowan -- on electric guitar -- singing "Land of the Navajo."
- Bryan Bowers singing "Let It Be." John Hartford leading the audience in a sing-along on "Orange Blossom Special."
- New Grass Revival shredding "Lee Highway Blues" with help from John Hartford and Peter Wernick.
- Ricky Skaggs on electric mandolin leading a hot country band through "Raising The Dickens."
- Leon Russell performing with Sam Bush and John Cowan.
