Join us for a generation-spanning triple bill in honor of the dearly departed Earl Scruggs led by the great Del McCoury. With his sons in the band, McCoury conjures an authentic high lonesome sound that prompted Dirty Linen to declare, “There’s no voice in bluegrass quite as distinct.”
Opening honors go to the virtuosic young pair Cahalen Morrison & Eli West, a self-proclaimed “new-old time duo” from Seattle, and Brooklyn’s Spirit Family Reunion, whose joyfully raucous, communal music “blurs the line between past and present so thoroughly, and so deftly, that time feels irrelevant."
