“A curious trio explores a path less trod…and brilliantly performed.” – Berkeley Times

“They perform beautifully together: perfect synchronization of subtle rhythms and phrases.” – South Bay Guitar Society

Black Cedar is the only chamber ensemble devoted to the unique instrumentation of cello and guitar combined with a variety of flutes – wood flute, alto flute, bass flute, and Renaissance recorder – with a repertoire spanning almost five centuries.

The HillBenders - "making bluegrass hip again, one day at a time"     High energy bluegrass and more!

Saturday, September 13, 2014 - 8:00 pm
$18 adv / $20 day of show

Claiming the championship title at the 2009 Telluride Bluegrass Band Competition helped put The HillBenders on the map, and their victory at the 2010 National Single Microphone Championships prove that they continue to be a force to be reckoned with. Formed in the spring of 2008, the band's members hail from distant corners of the U.S. but now base themselves in Springfield, MO. Rooted in the traditions of bluegrass, The HillBenders push the boundaries of the genre by combining influences from country, rock, blues, jazz and Americana into their sound to produce something entirely new. Some say it's newgrass, some say it's bluegrass, some say it's neither, but everyone says that whatever it is, it's incredible!
