Listen: Earls of Leicester Have The Mountain Stage Song Of The Week

Earls of Leicester featuring Jerry Douglas

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 plumbs 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.
