Sleepy Man Banjo Boys Perform 'How Mountain Girls Can Love' (VIDEO)

9-Year-Old Is Out To Be The Best Banjo Player Ever

The Mizzone family has three talented sons and a clear star player -- 9-year-old Jonny Mizzone, who looks like a Newsie and rocks the banjo like he's out to upstage Bela Fleck. In this video, Jonny strums his impossibly fast fingers to Ralph Stanley's' "How Mountain Girls Can Love," alongside his brother Robbie, on fiddle, and Tommy on guitar, who are very good, too, but have the disadvantage of old age (12 and 14, respectively). The three call themselves the Sleepy Man Banjo Boys, and they're no amateurs -- the boys have their own fancy website, a CD and appeared on Letterman last year, performing "Flint Hill Special." Catch them at bluegrass festivals this month and get a preview below.
