Hear the Earls of Leicester Play "Rollin' in my Sweet Baby's Arms" Live on Mountain Stage

Brian Blauser

It's been suggested that the Earls of Leicester (pronounced "Lester") might well be one of the greatest band  name puns of all time. Under the direction of dobro phenom Jerry Douglas, and with country singer-songwriter Shawn Camp on lead vocals, the Earls are a Grammy-winning star group that plumb the depths of the bluegrass masters Flatt & Scruggs. Their performance of  "Rollin' in My Sweet Baby's Arms" came at the request of host Larry Groce, who asked them to play one more song for the enraptured audience.
