More about Seldom Scene
What does it take for a bluegrass band to remain popular for more than four decades? For the Seldom Scene, it’s taken not only talented musicians, a signature sound, and a solid repertoire, but also a sheer sense of fun. On April 22, the longtime pillars of the bluegrass world will return with the aptly titled LONG TIME…..SELDOM SCENE. The newly recorded collection features fresh interpretations of the 16 oft-requested tunes and is the band’s first studio album since the GRAMMY nominated album Scenechronized in 2007. It’s a family reunion in all the best ways, featuring the current-and longest running- lineup, joined by founding members Tom Gray and John Starling and guests Chris Eldridge, Emmylou Harris, and Rickie Simpkins.
This is The Seldom Scene’s first ever release with Smithsonian Folkways, and captures the identity and playfulness that have endeared the group to audiences around the world for so long. “Hickory Wind” is a homesick ballad that features the vocals of longtime friend of the Scene, Emmylou Harris, who originally recorded the song on her Blue Kentucky Girl album in 1980. Fan favorite “Wait a Minute” is a fresh take of a song originally recorded for 1974’s Old Train album and includes founding member John Starling (vocals) and guests Rickie Simpkins (fiddle) and Chris Eldridge (guitar), son of founding member Ben Eldridge (banjo).
Must be 21 years of age or older to consume alcohol and must present an ID upon entering for wristbands and tickets.
