Mandolin master David Grisman goes one-on-one with some of the world's greatest talents in acoustic music for Dawg Duos, an intimate collection of newly recorded duets. Among the special guests included on this memorable project are banjo innovator Bela Fleck, bass composer Edgar Meyer, violin masters Mark O'Connor and Vassar Clements, National guitar ace Bob Brozman, Indian percussionist Zakir Hussain and many more. Dawg Duos features five new Grisman compositions written especially for the project, including the hypnotic opening track "Mando-Bass Boogie Sonata" and the plaintive closer, "Old Souls," which features the auspicious recording debut of Julian Lage, an amazing eleven-year-old jazz guitarist.

As the Dawg himself puts it, "Like twelve different inkblot reflections, these duo encounters with great practitioners of the acoustic arts inspire unique musical patterns and symmetries." Dawg Duos is sure to appeal to fans of acoustic music of all genres.
