Come take a sonic journey through time and trace the evolution of slide guitar from its roots to its modern stylings. Leading us through these songs will be Simon Kurth and his band Mescalito, and a spectacular cast of guests  In addition to playing on the songs, each featured slide player will be sharing some background of what is special about the song and slide technique.
