Clay Hess is a Grammy award winner who first burst upon the national bluegrass music scene as the red-hot-flat-picking guitarist with Ricky Skaggs and Kentucky Thunder, with whom he toured for three years. With his awesome speed and tasty sense of syncopation, Hess has established himself as one of the top flat-pickers in the business. He lends his talents and experience to the Kentucky Center for Traditional Music as an instructor of traditional stringed instruments.
