Seldom Scene

November 24, 2018 @ 8:00 pm

Dubbed “America’s bluegrass band,” The Seldom Scene has been instrumental in starting the progressive bluegrass movement since forming in Bethesda, MD, back in 1971.

So 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 (that includes bluegrass versions of country music, rock, and pop), but also a sheer sense of fun!

Using innovative and often unconventional instrumentation, this “newgrass” quintet has earned a Grammy nomination, legions of fans around the world, and a reputation for playing bluegrass a little differently than everyone else.
