In this podcast Flatpicking Guitar Magazine editor Dan Miller caught up with Bryan McDowell at Houstonfest in Galax, Virginia, in early May 2011. Bryan McDowell is the guy who has stunned the contest world over the past few years by not only winning the guitar, mandolin, and fiddle championships in the same year at the Walnut Valley contest in Winfield, Kansas, but also winning almost every other major contest up and down the east coast in all three of those instruments. Last year Bryan came out with a CD called "The Contestant" which highlights some of his contest arrangements. In this podcast we'll talk with Bryan about his contest wins and you'll get to hear his arrangement of "Whiskey Before Breakfast" from his new CD.
