Jerry Douglas - 2016/05/21 - Old Town School Of Folk Music - Chicago, IL

This appears to be an audience recording. I'd classify it as very good in audio quality.

No song names are given. Most of the selections are a medley of one or more songs.

It's pretty impressive that he can play a whole concert solo like this and keep it interesting.

Wow, great find Brad. Thanks!

Similar to a solo show he did, in Fall '14, in Harvard Square. Yes, he kept it moving and had us all eating out of his hand. Here's the list of tunes from above link, as I hear them:

A New Day Medley (sort of...)
Foggy Mt. Rock
Medley: Maiden's Prayer-Randy Lynn Rag-Home Sweet Home-Cincinnati Rag
A Peaceful Return
On A Monday
Senia's Lament
Perils of Private Mulvaney
Route Irish
Union House Branch
Hey Joe
Takarasaka
Sir Aly B-Sway Sur La Rue Royalle
Peodor O'Donnell-Lil' Roro-Little Martha
American Tune-Spain

Amazing that he'll sandwich this between a bunch of "Earls" gigs!

Thanks for naming all the songs, Andy!

I'll note that in a comment in the archive.org link if you haven't already.

Thanks for this. I just saw Jerry, Edgar and Sam Friday night at Rockygrass and haven't touched an instrument since. I hope someone recorded it as it was mindblowing.
