Boss Jim Baggett moonlights as backup guitarist?

It’s true, at least it was during the Kansas Fiddling & Picking Championships held on Aug. 26 in Lawrence.  Thanks to everyone who stopped by our booth by the way – it was a lot of fun to hang out and to witness all the great contestants perform, of all ages.

I was surprised however when Boss Flynn told me I should go check out the mandolin contest as Jim was backing up one of the contestants. They both played beautifully, and Jonah Chilton took home first place in the mando! Jim had a blast playing one of the Collings Custom CJ guitars.

Jim ended up jamming with everyone at the after party that evening as well. Way to go boss and congrats Jonah!
