Sam Bush is a true American music legend and is considered an originator of progressive bluegrass music. With three Grammy wins, 16 Grammy nominations, numerous awards from the International Bluegrass Music Association, and an Americana Music Association Lifetime Achievement Award under his belt, he continues to lead the charge in improvised string music.
The Father of Newgrass has long since established himself as roots royalty, revered for both his solo and sideman work, which includes time with Emmylou Harris, Lyle Lovett, and Béla Fleck. Punch Brothers, Steep Canyon Rangers, and Greensky Bluegrass are just a few present-day bluegrass vanguards among so many musicians he’s influenced. His performances are annual highlights of the festival circuit, with Bush’s joyous perennial appearances at the town’s famed bluegrass fest earning him the title of “King of Telluride.”
"With this band I have now I am free to try anything. Looking back at the last 50 years of playing newgrass, with the elements of jazz improvisation and rock-&-roll, jamming, playing with New Grass Revival, Leon, and Emmylou; it's a culmination of all of that," says Bush. "I can unapologetically stand onstage and feel I'm representing those songs well."
Doors will open at 7:30pm for this reserved seating show. The opening performer has not yet been announced.
