Mountain Heart


I don't know if there are any bluegrass fans on this list, as I don't think
the topic has ever come up, but I just heard the band Mountain Heart and
was hugely impressed.  They downplay it, but their awesome banjo player
Barry Abernathy (in a band of stunning virtuosi) is a congenital amputee,
with only 1.5 fingers on his left hand.  He does things I didn't imagine
