Already among the most beloved and revered of contemporary bluegrass groups, The Grascals trademark blend of traditional bluegrass and classic country (with more modern elements) has been further strengthened and refined by endless touring, and is showcased particularly well on their last two releases – Keep On Walkin’ and The Famous Lefty Flynn’s. The Grascals make classic bluegrass entirely relevant in the here and now, without losing sight of the music’s timeless roots.
“Excellent songwriting, incredible musicianship, and a band tightness that only comes from extensive touring…”-Dierks Bentley.

This rocker’s time has finally come. After putting 30+ years into 70’s punk bands like The Nuns and roots-rock collaborations with the likes of Whiskeytown, Ryan Adams, & Bruce Springsteen (not to mention 13 solo albums), his latest release, Street Songs of Love, is garnering huge praise and building his underground fan base into something much larger. A New York Times “critic’s choice” review of the new album claimed that, “In another, less fragmented pop era, this would be the album of thoughtful but radio-ready love songs to finally get Mr. Escovedo the big national audience he deserves.”
Friday, 1/29 – 8pm.
