A veritable who's who of West Coast Progressive Bluegrass players make up this legendary band. Banjoist Bill Keith actually has a style of banjo playing named for his inimitably melodic and blazingly fast playing. Mandolinist David Grisman now incorporates Gypsy Jazz, Klezmer and classical music into his work, and has become a renowned bandleader. Fiddler Richard Greene has gone on to a successful career as a sideman and session player, while the late Clarence White was perhaps the most influential country and Bluegrass guitarist in the last thirty years of the 20th century. As a member of the Kentucky Colonels, he redefined the role of guitar in Bluegrass with his blazing solos, and as an electric guitarist for the Byrds, White invented the Parsons/White Stringbender and set the standard for all country guitar to come. Even though Muleskinner was really just a side project/labor of love for those involved and does not have an extensive recorded legacy, they were important for truly expanding the parameters of what Bluegrass audiences would listen to.
