The Ponte Vedra Concert Hall, in partnership with Flying Saucer Presents, proudly welcomes Grammy award winning, bluegrass sextet, The Earls of Leicester featuring Jerry Douglas to Ponte Vedra Beach on Friday, April 5, 2019.
When The Earls of Leicester formed in 2013, their mission was ambitious but exact; to preserve and promote the legacy of bluegrass legends Lester Flatt and Earl Scruggs in the hopes of reviving the duo’s music for longtime admirers and introducing a new generation to their genre-defining sound.
Within a year of releasing their self-titled debut, the Nashville-based six-piece far surpassed their own expectations, winning a Grammy Award for Best Bluegrass Album and earning six awards from the International Bluegrass Music Association. Now, with their first live album, Earls of Leicester offer up a selection of songs that fully capture the pure joy and supreme musicianship that propel their every performance.
The all-star outfit of Jerry Douglas (Dobro, vocals), Shawn Camp (guitar, lead vocals), Barry Bales (bass, vocals), Johnny Warren (fiddle, bass vocals), Charlie Cushman (banjo, guitars), and Jeff White (mandolin, vocals) bring the Foggy Mountain Boys to life, bearing a boundless vitality that makes songs from over a half-century ago feel irresistibly fresh.
Doors 7:00pm / Show 8:00pm
