Celebrating their 40th Anniversary in 2011, , the Seldom Scene has thrived on playing bluegrass a little differently than everyone else. If other bands used a fiddler, the Seldom Scene used a Dobro; if others relied on old standards, the Seldom Scene played rock classics like J.J. Cale’s “After Midnight.” Through skilled musicianship and an urban approach to bluegrass, the Seldom Scene has become one of the most influential – if not the most influential – bluegrass band of the last 30 years. The current lineup includes Ben Eldridge (banjo), Dudley Connell (guitar), Fred Travers (dobro), Ronnie Simpkins (bass), and Lou Reid (mandolin).
Michelle Canning & Rough Edges is an award-winning bluegrass band based in Eastern Massachusetts. They play fast-driving bluegrass, contemporary ballads, and original material, providing the audience with an energetic show. Michelle Canning is the 2009 New England Banjo Champion and has been receiving awards for her banjo playing since she was eleven years old. Now this busy university student has welcomed some tremendous new members into her band and present a show not to be missed! Members include Michelle Canning: banjo/vocals, Dan Bui: mandolin/vocals, Cosmo Cavicchio: bass/vocals, T Shaun Batho: guitar/vocals, and Conor Smith: fiddle
