Okay, let's play! Who would be in YOUR Ultimate Bluegrass Dream Duet? Pick two vocalists, living or Gone Home, male and/or female, from bluegrass and/or any OTHER genre! Who would you cast in your Dream Duet, and what would you have them sing to you?

Ralph Stanley and Jean Ritchie singing “Copper Kettle.”
Rhonda Vincent and Darrin Vincent singing “Beneath Still Waters.”
Bill Monroe and Hazel Dickens… real, raw, pure, and powerful.
Russell Moore and Emmylou Harris… “On The Other Side of Jordan.”
Dale Ann Bradley & Dolly Parton.
John Cowan and Alison Krauss singing the phone book. ;)
Danny Hootenanny Clark
Simple. Del McCoury and Ronnie McCoury singing any McCoury song ever recorded.
Alison Krauss and John Duffey, “Life Is Like A Mountain Railroad.”
John Cowan and Darrell Scott, not just one song but an entire album together... :)
Robert Greer (Town Mountain) with Ike Sheldon (The Wilders) singing “Misery Loves Company.”
Charlie Waller and Dolly Parton.
Carter Stanley and Ira Louvin, “I Heard The Bluebirds Sing.”
Doyle Lawson and Steve Gulley reunited. I would want a whole album of just them. They sounded AMAZING together in the mid-'90s.
I'd really be in a dream to see Larry Cordle & Ricky Skaggs singing “Lonesome Dove” together...
Tony Rice and Alison Krauss, “Summer Wages.”
Douglas E. Jessmer
Don Reno and Red Smiley. Who needs to cobble together a duo when these guys set 'em up and knocked 'em down for years?
