About Russ Barenberg
Virtuoso guitarist Barenberg was a founding member of the short-lived but influential Progressive Bluegrass band Country Cooking. He started out as an acolyte of the late flat-picking acoustic guitarist Clarence White, and developed into a singular stylist able to incorporate many different types of music into his acoustic sound. He has worked extensively with dobro wiz Jerry Douglas and many other top instrumentalists in the Progressive Bluegrass and acoustic music fields. In addition to his work as a leader, Barenberg is a first-call session guitarist on the Nashville studio scene and an author of many highly regarded instructional books and videos.
