Alison Brown Quartet

In the instrumental food chain, the five-string banjo is one of the more dominant beasts: loud, brash and very hard to tame. In 1945, Earl Scruggs made the biggest leap in harnessing its raw power, bringing a revolutionary precision of touch and depth of tone. Thousands of three-finger style banjo players have since made their marks, but none has cut such a path or moved so far along it as has the Grammy-winning Alison Brown. She’s acclaimed as one of today’s finest progressive banjo players, but after leaving Alison Krauss & Union Station you rarely find her in a conventional bluegrass setting. Instead, she’s known for leading an ensemble that successfully marries a broad array of roots-influenced music: folk, jazz, Celtic and Latin. Tonight Alison will be traveling with her 1894 banjuerine – an instrument crafted into life the same year that the Opera House was built. A remarkable, unforgettable night of music is on the horizon.
