Nearly 50 years of Michigan bluegrass!
It's hard to believe, because each show is fresh and new, but the RFD Boys have been delighting Michigan audiences since 1969 with their fabulous musicianship and sly, exquisitely timed between-song humor. They're the house band of Michigan bluegrass, but they're more than that too. With an appearance on the cover of Bluegrass Unlimited, with songs recorded by the likes of the Country Gentlemen, and with performances alongside bluegrass greats like Bill Monroe and Ralph Stanley, the RFD Boys are a part of America's bluegrass tradition. They're one of southeastern Michigan's most durable musical ensembles, and their anniversary shows capture a deep slice of musical Ann Arbor. If you've been with the boys since the beginning, come and celebrate! If you're new to the area, here's a good time to check out this Michigan institution--and probably make some new friends! Tonight's show features a special guest appearance from Judy Dow Rumelhart, and look for some amazing twin fiddling from the phenomenal Brad Phillips and Luke Panning!
