From his youthful days as a member of Ralph Stanley's band, to a stretch as a Nashville superstar, to his rediscovery of the bluegrass he grew up with in recent years, Ricky Skaggs has been a musician of integrity and inspiration. He has a knack for finding new songs that have the dignity and seriousness of the best of classic bluegrass, yet he also brings a wicked sense of humor to his stage presentation.
Agora Chorale Concert.
Gemini, the Michigan duo of San and Laz Slomovits, is well known and loved for their shows for families. But lately they've reinvigorated their career singing music for adults. The brothers play songs by many of the artists who've inspired them, including Woody Guthrie, Pete Seeger, Bob Dylan, Tom Paxton, and the Beatles. They also sing their own songs, as well as poetry they've set to music. Leave the kids at home with their favorite babysitter and come celebrate and sing with two beloved Michigan musicians! Joining Gemini for this concert will be a few longtime friends and musical collaborators, Grammy award winning harmonica wizard, Peter Madcat Ruth, Emmy award winning pianist and composer, Brian Brill, and two young uber talented musicians, San's daughter, Emily, and bassist, Jacob Warren.
