The Father of Newgrass and King of Telluride, Sam Bush returns to Asheville for a performance at Hazel Robinson Amphitheatre on Wednesday, August 11th! Sam Bush’s mandolin and fiddle mastery can be measured by his IBMA hall of fame status, multiple Grammys, and many other accolades. Harder to measure is his influence, blending of musical genres, and seemingly endless amounts of joy that he brings to each performance. Best experienced live, time after time.
Tickets available beginning on May 18th at Noon EST.
Doors at 6pm // Show 7pm
Concert presented by: Plugged-In Productions
Sponsor: Mountain Nest Art Gallery
Media Sponsor: WNCW
No outside food, beverages, or chairs are allowed in the venue.
There was only one prize-winning teenager carrying stones big enough to say thanks, but no thanks to Roy Acuff. Only one son of Kentucky finding a light of inspiration from Bill Monroe and his Blue Grass Boys and catching a fire from Bob Marley and The Wailers. Only one progressive hippie allying with like-minded conspirators, rolling out the New Grass revolution, and then leaving the genre’s torch-bearing band behind as it reached its commercial peak.
There is only one consensus pick of peers and predecessors, of the traditionalists, the rebels, and the next gen devotees. Music’s ultimate inside outsider. Or is it outside insider? There is only one Sam Bush.
