Sam Bush
WorkPlay, 9/7, 8:00 PM

Multi-instrumentalist Sam Bush doesn’t seem old enough to be a musical legend. And he’s not. But he is. And though Bush is best known for jaw-dropping skills on the mandolin, he is also a three-time national junior fiddle champion and Grammy award-winning vocalist. Alternately known as the King of Telluride and the King of Newgrass, Bush has been honored by the Americana Music Association and the International Bluegrass Music Association. He’s made music over the years with fellow “Who’s Who” in bluegrass, folk, blues and country music … and he’s who’s coming to town on September 7!  Don’t miss this chance to see and hear a musical legend at work, at WorkPlay!
