Hot Rize w/ Red Knuckles and the Trailblazers July 14th
It didn’t take long after Tim O’Brien, Pete Wernick, Nick Forster, and Charles Sawtelle first appeared onstage together in 1978 for the bluegrass music world to realize that the Colorado band, Hot Rize, was something special. And by the time they bowed off the stage as a full-time act in 1990, they’d not only climbed to the top of that world as the International Bluegrass Music Association’s very first Entertainers of the Year, but their stature was recognized across the board, with a nomination for a then-new bluegrass Grammy, a four-star album review in Rolling Stone, tours across four continents, and a legion of up-and-coming, broad-minded young musicians ranging from String Cheese Incident to mando monster Chris Thile learning their songs and singing their praises.
Following the release of When I’m Free last September, Hot Rize has been touring across the country, sure to please not only longtime fans of the band, but countless new fans who’ve discovered bluegrass and Americana music in more recent times.
“Hot Rize is the great modern bluegrass band. They’re the connective tissue that links the great founders of bluegrass with the modern tradition.” – Steve Martin
This show is a co-production with:
Hot Monroe Crossing featuring Dolce Canto performs “The World Beloved: A Bluegrass Mass” July 28th
Named in honor of Bill Monroe, “The Father of Bluegrass Music,” Monroe Crossing dazzles audiences with an electrifying blend of classic bluegrass, bluegrass gospel, and heartfelt originals. Their airtight harmonies, razor sharp arrangements, and on-stage rapport make them audience favorites across the United States and Canada.
On February 18, 2013, Monroe Crossing served as the orchestra for the Carnegie Hall premiere of “The World Beloved: A Bluegrass Mass” under the direction of Nancy Menk. The experience was such as success that the band has been invited to return to Carnegie Hall on June 9, 2014 to recreate the world premier with conductor Philip Brunelle!
Dolce Canto began in 2001. The choir is comprised of professional musicians, music teachers, community members, and students who share an enthusiasm for choral music. While primarily sticking to its a cappella roots, Dolce Canto has also delved into several accompanied works and has premiered compositions by outstanding living composers.Based in Minnesota, the group plays an average of 125 shows a year at major venues and festivals across the US and Canada.
The choir performs several programs each year for both public and private audiences, and has been featured on programs of 2 Valleys Stage, Madison River Music Festival, Mineral County Performing Arts Series, Sanders County Performing Arts Series, and St. Timothy’s Summer Music Festival.
THE WORLD BELOVED: A BLUEGRASS MASS
Commissioned by Mike and Kay McCarthy and brilliantly executed by composer Carol Barnett and librettist Marisha Chamberlain, The World Beloved: A Bluegrass Mass blends the classical mass, modern choral sophistication, touching poetry and traditional bluegrass instrumentation into an exhilarating musical experience.
Originally premiered by Monroe Crossing with VocalEssence, a Minnesota-based choral group led by Philip Brunelle, choirs from Texas, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Iowa, California, Indiana and Washington DC have since brought Monroe Crossing in to perform The World Beloved.
