Tickets are available for “Back to the Land”, a benefit concert for the new Brown County History Center. It will be a great night for lovers of American traditional folk music. The evening will be filled with talent, musical inspiration, and living history – with the emphasis on “living” – when these phenomenal performers come together:
Grey Larsen is one of America’s finest players of the Irish flute and tin whistle, as well as an accomplished singer and concertina, fiddle, piano and harmonium player. Grey’s playing has been called “positively spellbinding” (The New Mexico Daily, Albuquerque, NM) and “exceptionally exceptional” (The Spectator, Raleigh Durham, NC). Larsen has authored “The Essential Guide to Irish Flute and Tin Whistle” and “The Essential Tin Whistle Toolbox”.
Bob Lucas is a songwriter, actor, singer & multi-instrumentalist. He has lived in Logan County, Ohio for the last 15 years working for the locally known as well as nationally famous Mad River Theater Works where he holds the position of music director and songwriter in residence. While at Mad River he has written music for and performed in 25 original plays. His debut solo album, “The Dancer Inside You” received a four star rating from Downbeat Magazine. Recently two more of his songs have been released on the award winning Alison Krauss and Union Station album “New Favorite”. He released a CD of his music called Rushsylvania, named after the town he lived in for more than 10 years and was just re-released in 2005.
The concert will take place in the Brown County Playhouse in the center of Nashville at 7:30 p.m. on the evening of Saturday, May 19.
