Bent on Bluegrass with The Bluegrass Gospel Project & Banjo Dan and the Mid-Nite Plowboys
Saturday, September 8, 2012 from 8:00 PM to 11:00 PM (EDT)
The Bluegrass Gospel Project
The Bluegrass Gospel Project has been impressing audiences with expertly rendered performances since its inception in 2001. The group has been called “one of New England’s premier concert acts” (Casey Rea, Seven Days, 2005). The BGP brings together top-tier vocalists and instrumentalists (“Just try and find a better group of singers” --Robert Resnik, 2009, host of Vermont Public Radio’s ‘All the Traditions’) to interpret a wide range of material, from southern spirituals and Appalachian gems to contemporary songs by Brett Dennen and U2. The BGP is truly unique in that it presents a repertoire of music with a spiritual sensibility but without any religious agenda.
