These three are brothers from Lebanon, New Jersey, and they can strum a guitar like the best of them. Their specialty is bluegrass and their talent is astonishing. They call themselves the Sleepy Man Banjo Boys because the littlest brother Jonny played his banjo lying down with his eyes closed (the adult banjo proved to be pretty heavy for him when he was younger). They made their first huge splash on Youtube in 2011 when Jonny the youngest was only 8 years old. In this video they are 8, 12 and 13 and they play Earl Scrugg’s “Flint Hill Special”. This is the Youtube video that shot them into stardom – appearing on The David Letterman show soon after. Wow.
