Bernie Coveney’s smile is the first thing you notice. It’s far more boyish than you expect from a man of his age. It’s also infectious.

Coveney is a guitarist, a damn good one. He used to play with Emmylou Harris and that’s the kind of gig any guitar player would love to have on their resume. Nowadays he plays mostly with the Abe Goorskey Trio. Abe is a student, a mandolin player and singer. Chris Luster on bass makes up the rest of the trio. Bernie’s work on the guitar is pure magic.

You can catch it on this video from Floyd’s annual Spring Into Summer festival.
