Roland White and Friends-A Tribute to The Kentucky Colonels CD Release Show
Please note, this event has expired.
Bluegrass mandolin master Roland White has played in some of the most influential and popular groups in the music’s history, and has played a notable part in creating that history. Moving from The Kentucky Colonels into a position as guitarist for Bill Monroe in the late 60’s, Roland absorbed the traditional feel and repertoire from his mentor, the Father of Bluegrass, which remains a strong element in his music today. From Monroe’s band, Roland joined that of another bluegrass pioneer, Lester Flatt, playing mandolin and recording several albums as a member of The Nashville Grass from 1969-1973. In 1973 a short-lived reunion of The White Brothers was brought to an untimely end due to Clarence White’s tragic death. Of this brief reunion came two concert recordings that capture the excitement of the White Brothers’ sound fully matured, after Clarence’s excursions in country rock with the Byrds and Roland’s years with Monroe and Flatt.
