      EVENT DETAILS
      The Seldom Scene


      The Seldom Scene is without a doubt, Washington DCs favorite bluegrass band but dont think of this legendary band as a regional band. With a body of work stretching back to 1971 and early collaborations with Emmy Lou Harris, Linda Ronstadt and Jonathan Edwards they are easily one on the most recognizable bands on the circuit today with fans located all over the world.As one of the first bluegrass bands to embrace a non-traditional approach they stretched the boundaries of what was acceptable by embracing artists such as Bob Dylan and the Grateful Dead while mixing it up with Merle Haggard and traditional tunes as well. As it was from the beginning days with signature tenor singer John Duffey, the band is still known for its soaring, incredibly tight, vocal gymnastics.Today the band features Ron Stewart on banjo and fiddle, Dudley Connell on guitar (formerly of the Johnson Mt. Boys), Fred Travers on dobro, Lou Reid on mandolin (formerly with Ricky Skaggs) and Ronnie Simpkins on bass (formerly with The Tony Rice Unit). Sometimes irreverent, always entertaining, the Scenes legend continues growing into the 21st century. "Since its inception in 1971, 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." ~ Ronnie D. Lankford, Jr., All Music Guide
