Center for the Arts: Sam Bush

January 22 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm


The Father of Newgrass and King of Telluride, legendary mandolin master Sam Bush has long established himself as bluegrass royalty. A lifetime of channeling his energy has led to stylistic innovations that have changed the course of bluegrass and roots music alike. The sheer ferocity of his playing and the brilliant suppleness, ease and warmth of his vocals have earned him a suite of honors including a “Lifetime Achievement” from the Americana Music Association; four International Bluegrass Music Association “Mandolin Player of the Year” awards, and three Grammys heralding talents from best album to best performance. His most recent album, Storyman, is a freewheeling collection that gleefully picks and chooses from jazz, folk, blues, reggae, country swing, and bluegrass to create a jubilant noise only classifiable as the Sam Bush sound. Revered for both his solo and sideman work, which includes time with the likes of Emmylou Harris, Lyle Lovett and Béla Fleck, Sam boasts a bevy of 30 recorded albums. This will be an evening full of light and joy, peace and frenzy, a rapt merging of life and music. Sam plays with his full band for this concert.
