The performances compiled for this DVD by guitarist Pat Kirtley represent the best of today’s Kentucky thumbpickers. Players such as Bob Saxton, Maurice Jones and Moon Mullins have been playing the style since Travis first became a star, while others such as Paul Moseley, Steve Rector and Kirtley are a new generation of thumbpickers putting a subtle, new spin on the music while remaining true to the original sound. Like bluegrass, country music and zydeco, thumbpicking is unique to America’s cultural landscape and it is the musical pride and joy of the place where it all began – Muhlenberg County.
