Yesterday I was reading an old obituary for the great banjo player E.C. Miller on Bluegrass Today, and I was shocked and crushed to see that Steve Sutton had passed away. He certainly was a shining example of a kind and generous spirit--and he could pick the fire, and everything else, out of a five.
Here's a clip of Laurie Lewis and Tom Rozum (the sketcher), doing a Si Khan number. And, if you get a chance, I highly recommend Todd's In the Pines recording, which is one of my all-time favorite albums. It has everybody on it. I tried pretty hard to learn Laurie's version of this classic, but I just can't get it!
