The box office, Art Bar and galleries open at 7 p.m., with the performance beginning at 8 p.m. A free pre-performance conversation with the artists — “Delivering Bluegrass Like No One Has Ever Heard It Before” — is also planned at 3 p.m.

The John Jorgenson Bluegrass Band features four legendary, award-winning musicians –Jorgenson on acoustic guitar, mandolin and vocals; Herb Pedersen on banjo, acoustic guitar and vocals; Mark Fain on bass; and Patrick Sauber on acoustic guitar and vocals – delivering bluegrass like no one has ever heard it before.
The band’s undeniable live shows have received stellar reviews and have the bluegrass world buzzing. The four combine forces to form a spot-on union of impeccable musicianship, incomparable songwriting, incredible harmony vocals (a fresh twist combining bluegrass with elements of West Coast folk rock) and seasoned showmanship. This is the “high lonesome sound” of American roots music at its finest.
