The Lenfest Center for the Arts
Bluegrass Ensemble Concert
Thursday, April 4, 2019 at 7:00 p.m.
Washington and Lee University's Bluegrass Ensemble offer their Spring Concert on Thursday evening, April 4th, beginning at 7 p.m. in Stackhouse Theater. The concert is open to the public and no tickets are required.
This year's songs include traditional bluegrass and blues tunes, one of which, Soldier's Joy, actually dates back 200 years to Scotland! The repertoire ranges from the Grateful Dead to Dolly Parton, The Stanley Brothers to Toto, and features a version of Shallow, recently recognized by the Academy Awards as Best Original Song. An original song, Watch Me Run, composed by W&L senior Zack Ely, will be debuted as well.
The five W&L students and three staff members have worked diligently all semester preparing for this performance and are eager to entertain.
