9-Year-Old Boy Delivers ‘Dueling Banjos’ Duet With Brother

Sleepy Man YouTube

The Sleepy Man Banjo Boys consist of three young brothers that know how to rock some bluegrass. They’ve already blown our minds once before when we saw their exceptional performance of Earl Scruggs’ “Flint Hill Special,” during a special appearance on the David Letterman Show, but here is yet another performance that further solidifies our opinion of these boys.

“Dueling Banjos” was composed by Arthur “Guitar Boogie” Smith in 1955. Originally titled “Feudin’ Banjos,” it was first aired on television in 1963 on The Andy Griffith Show.

The tune’s popularity was taken to new heights when it was used in the 1972 film Deliverance.

Watching these two young brother perform such a complicated composition with a banjo and guitar is really a feast for the ears. We seriously can’t get enough of it. Their impressive rendition really showcases their talents. And just wait until the third brother comes in with the fiddle.

It’s a must-see, y’all.
