Jerry Douglas Presents Earls Of Leicester
July 23, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
The Earls of Leicester is a group of like-minded musicians banding together to recreate the wonderful music of Lester Flatt and Earl Scruggs and the Foggy Mountain Boys. Led by thirteen-time Grammy-winner Jerry Douglas, The Earls of Leicester features the talents of some of Nashville’s most talented musicians, including hit songwriter Shawn Camp on guitar and lead vocals, Tim O’Brien on mandollin, bassist Barry Bales (Douglas’s cohort in Alison Krauss & Union Station), fiddler Johnny Warren (son of Paul Warren, legendary fiddle player in Flatt & Scruggs’ Foggy Mountain Boys band), and acclaimed banjo player Charlie Cushman. The band plays selections from the era of 1954 to 1965. During these years, the band was comprised Lester, Earl, dobro player Josh Graves, fiddler Paul Warren, tenor singer and mandonlist Curly Seckler and bass player Jake Tullock. In a relatively short time as a performing group, “The Earls” shows have quickly become the stuff of legend in the roots/acoustic/bluegrass community.
Doors open at 7 p.m. and show starts at 8 p.m.
