Best of Westchester - Editors' Picks
Best Bluegrass Bill 2006
We know you can have the blues, but is it also possible to have the bluegrass? If so, the Emelin's got it in spades. Each year, the theater puts on a five-concert, bluegrass-only series that features some of the hottest talent touring. Last year's performers included the band David Peterson and 1946, nominees for the International Bluegrass Music Association's Emerging Artists of the Year award; Grammy nominee Laurie Lewis, winner of an IBMA award for Female Vocalist of the Year; and James Reams and the Barnstormers, artists praised by DJ Steve Daughtery as straight-up, no-nonsense, take-no-prisoners bluegrass. The Emelin makes it even easier to catch all acts in the series: a subscription ticket to all five shows is available at a discounted price.
