    Default Andy Statman's Opry debut

    Hi all, don't know if this has been covered here but found an article about Andy's debut at the Opry with the Eddy brothers:

    I didn't find any videos of this set but I'd love to see it.

    I am kicking myself that they played multiple shows within 2 hours of here and I didn't know.

    So does anyone know how to get the Statman & Eddy record as a download? I only see it as pressed vinyl.

    OK, answered my own question. You can find Jake Eddy's email address on his website or Reddit posts. Emailed him, he replied, Venmo'd him, he's sending me the Statman-Eddy CD.

    I was at that Maine backyard concert. Young Eddy had just graduated from high school two days prior. Statman was fabulous!

    There are a lot of players who blow me away, but I don't know if I know of anyone with his speed and precision. Just wow.

    Andy's the best. We just saw him in a fantastic Breakfast Special reunion show in a small club in New York with Tony Trischka, Kenny Kosek, and Michael Daves.
