Jim Lauderdale

When: Sun., Jan. 22, 7 p.m. 2017

Bluegrass is like the swedish death metal of country music. Seriously, if you threw some distortion on the banjos and mandolins, then maybe slid that major key into the relative minor to make it sadder you’d have the most aloof of death metal fans emotionlessly nodding in approval. With that said, Jim Lauderdale is the best of the best in the bluegrass department. With 27 albums released over the course of several decades, and a Grammy for best bluegrass album, Lauderdale is sure to deliver a taste of hyper strumming and technical finger work to get that foot-a- tappin’.
