From the artist's facebook page:

Some artists are able to articulate a vision at the very beginning of their career, while others hone their craft over time, growing into their vision as they mature.

From the author’s website:

He started as a music agent at the Agency for the Performing Arts in New York City and promoted the ascendancy of rock ‘n’ roll in the United States from 1966-69. He scouted, signed, and worked with, new and up-and-coming artists and groups—most notably, Jefferson Airplane, The Doors, Chambers Brothers, Iron Butterfly, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Steppenwolf, Love, Sonny Terry and Brownie McGee and Tim Buckley.

In 1970, he moved to the San Francisco Bay Area where he worked as Jerry Garcia’s personal manager. He worked closely with the Garcia-Saunders Band, and facilitated the formation of Old & In the Way—a bluegrass band comprised of Jerry Garcia, David Grisman, Peter Rowan, John Kahn and Vassar Clements.

Daniel Shaw

Check 1, 2 host Daniel Shaw meet up with the Royal Southern Brotherhood just before they hit the stage at the Snowmass Mammoth Fest on Sunday, June 15th.

Here’s a bio write-up from the band’s website:

The Brotherhood is back. Some might say they’ve never been away. Two years have passed since 2012’s self-titled debut album, but the genre-splicing all-star Southerners have barely paused for breath.

Jackson Emmer and Ross Kribbs stopped by the studios of Aspen Public Radio on Friday May 30 with guitar and fiddle in hand for an impromptu studio performance with their 'audience of one', Aspenbeat  host Andrea Young.
