Saturday Night Shuffle

I hope you enjoy the video Pat Bergeson and I did for “Saturday Night Shuffle”. This song appears on my new album, Accomplice One. On the album, it’s not only a duet with Pat Bergeson but also with my old friend Jorma Kaukonen. I’ve always wanted to record with Jorma, but I had to find the right track. I didn’t want to just do another blues track. I wanted to give Jorma the opportunity to play on something different. This song is a Merle Travis classic, and I approached it like a jug band. The solos are in the key of B. Jorma laughed that he’d never played in B before. Pat Bergeson added some cool harmonica and really made this track a lot of fun!!
