Thrasher Opera House will host a band composed of Grammy-nominated and Grammy-winning artists, collectively known as the Appalachian Road Show (ARS) Friday, Aug. 20 at 7:30 p.m.
This acoustic ensemble brings new-generation interpretations of traditional Americana, bluegrass and folk songs, while offering innovative original music presented with a common thread that is tied to the heart of the Appalachian regions of the United States.
Grammy-nominated banjoist Barry Abernathy, joins forces with Grammy-winning fiddler Jim VanCleve, fresh off of his recent stint touring with multi-platinum country artist Josh Turner, as well as esteemed vocalist and mandolinist Darrell Webb, who has recorded and toured with Dolly Parton and Rhonda Vincent among many others. The group also includes bassist Todd Phillips, an acknowledged legend in bluegrass music circles, with two Grammy wins and four Grammy nominations under his belt, along with 23-year-old guitarist Zeb Snyder, whose fierce and versatile playing recalls Doc Watson and Norman Blake as readily as it does Duane Allman and Stevie Ray Vaughn.
Tickets are $22. To make a reservation for the Appalachian Road Show, visit www.thrasheroperahouse.com or by call 920-294-4279.
