Fall Nebraska Bluegrass Concert Series closes Sept. 20 at NIC

Nebraska Bluegrass Concert attendees enjoy a performance by The Steel Wheels in the NIC Plaza.

The last concert of the fall Nebraska Bluegrass Concert Series will feature Appalachian Road Show with the Shucks Brothers.

The concert is 5-8:30 p.m. Sept. 20 on the Nebraska Innovation Campus plaza.

Food and drink vendors will available beginning at 5:00 p.m. Tours of Nebraska Innovation Studio, the makerspace located at NIC, will be offered at 5:30 p.m. There will be some seating, but guests are highly encouraged to bring their own lawn chair. Concerts will not be rescheduled for inclement weather. Instead, they will move inside the Mill Coffee & Bistro.

Appalachian Road Show is a visionary acoustic ensemble, bringing new-generation interpretations of traditional Americana, bluegrass and folk songs, as well as offering innovative original music, all presented with a common thread tied directly to the heart of the Appalachian regions of the United States. Grammy-nominated banjoist Barry Abernathy joins forces with Grammy-winning fiddler Jim VanCleve, fresh off of his recent stint touring with multi-platinum country artist Josh Turner, as well as esteemed vocalist and mandolinist Darrell Webb, who has recorded and toured with Dolly Parton and Rhonda Vincent, among many others. The group also includes 26-year-old “old soul” guitarist Zeb Snyder, whose fierce and versatile playing recalls Doc Watson and Norman Blake as readily as it does Duane Allman and Stevie Ray Vaughn.

The Shucks Brothers feature flying fingers and great harmonies on guitar, banjo, mandolin and bass. They are three experienced musicians playing bluegrass, beautiful ballads and red-hot instrumentals. The band features Dave Miller, Steve Hanson and Jim Pipher, all locals to Lincoln.
