Wayne Henderson and Josh Goforth, two virtuosos from the Appalachian region, combine their amazing talents and skills in this special appearance. A lifelong resident of Rugby, VA, Wayne took up the guitar at age 5, and in his teens he was winning ribbons at all of the region­s guitar contests and building instruments that are prized by musicians and collectors around the world. In 1995 he was honored with a National Heritage Fellowship, and recognized as a living national treasure. (See Wayne­s workshop descriptions on the next page.)

Award-winning fiddler and multi-instrumentalist, Josh Goforth, has devoted his life to learning and teaching both old-time music and bluegrass since the sixth grade. Josh tours in the U.S. and overseas, performing solo or with numerous bands including the world-renowned ETSU Bluegrass Pride Band. He appeared in the movie Songcatcher as Fiddlin­ Will and contributed several fiddle pieces to the soundtrack. Now in his early 20s, Josh is pursuing a dual career in music education and performance..
