David Grisman Bluegrass Experience
June 24, 2016$60
The Center for the Arts is proud to announce the David Grisman Bluegrass Experience coming this summer, Friday, June 24. Tickets go on sale Friday, April 1.
For nearly half a century, mandolinist / composer / bandleader / producer David Grisman has been a guiding force in the evolving world of acoustic music. A pioneer and innovator, David forged a unique personal artistic path, skillfully combining elements of the great American musical art forms – jazz and bluegrass mixed with many international flavors and sensibilities to create his own distinctive idiom – “Dawg” music (the nickname given him by Jerry Garcia). His discography is filled with notables including Jerry Garcia (with whom he created Old & in the Way), the Grateful Dead, John Hartford, Del McCoury, Bonnie Raitt, Linda Ronstadt, Earl Scruggs, James Taylor and Doc Watson. Five of his prolific recordings have been Grammy-nominated. The David Grisman Bluegrass Experience includes Keith Little (5-string banjo, guitar and vocals), Jim Nunally (guitar and vocals), Chad Manning (fiddle), Samson Grisman (bass), and with David on mandolin and vocals.
