Banjo powerhouse Bill Evans hosts a Bay Area All-Star Tribute featuring Del Williams, Kathy Kallick, Tom Rozum, David Thom, Paul Shelasky, Jim Mintun, Larry Cohea, Markie Sanders and Oak Grove, A Family Bluegrass Band.

Flatt & Scruggs Celebration Join this incredible one-time-only gathering of some of northern California’s best bluegrass musicians as they come together to perform the music of one of the most popular and influential bluegrass bands of all time, Lester Flatt, Earl Scruggs and the Foggy Mountain Boys. Experience a basket full of powerful Scruggs-style banjo playing–from host Bill Evans and Larry Cohea (High Country, Blue & Lonesome), soulful singing from Kathy Kallick, Del Williams (True Blue), David Thom (The David Thom Band), Tom Rozum (Laurie Lewis & The Right Hands), Uncle Josh Graves-style dobro fireworks from Jim Mintun (High Country), and Paul Warren-esque fiddling from master fiddler Paul Shelasky (Blue & Lonesome)–in an all-Flatt and Scruggs program that will run the gambit from the band’s early 1950’s classics to gospel quartets and folk-influenced sounds of the band’s later years. Don’t forget to request the Martha White Theme! This concert also features Oak Grove, the Schwartz family bluegrass band featuring young phenoms Nate, Max and Tessa. This is a show not to be missed!
