Bluegrass acappella in Lexington on January 8th
Bluegrass music’s Vocal Group of the Year, Doyle Lawson and Quicksilver, make a rare area appearance on Saturday, January 8th at the National Heritage Museum. If you’re not familiar with bluegrass’ close harmony singing and pure vocal sound, then this is the show to turn your ear on. While not strictly acapella, the band is sure to impress.
Gospel Quartet singing is the mainstay of the Quicksilver repertoire, and Doyle is a master at discovering and revitalizing obscure material from old hymnbooks and early records. The band has received numerous Grammy nominations, International Bluegrass Music Awards, and is the 2004 IBMA Vocal Group of the Year.
