(Alex Rubin (US) & Catherine (BB) Bowness (New Zealand) 

"Together, Alex and BB explore the roots of acoustic music, playing a collection of folk songs, bluegrass tunes, and their own compositions which reflect their wide range of influences, including bluegrass, jazz, old-time and celtic music. Using diverse styles of banjo, guitar, vocals, fiddle and mandolin, they seamlessly blend genres in their arrangements of traditional and original tunes."

  • 13 Time Grammy Winner
  • 3 Time Country Music Association MUSICIAN OF THE YEAR
  • Distinguished Recipient of the NATIONAL HERITAGE FELLOWSHIP from The National Endowment Of The Arts 
  • Performed on over 2000 albums

    Ticket Information: All seats are General Admission.

As you may or may not know, David Lamb is again battling leukemia and is currently in need of all our thoughts and prayers. This online event was created to show support for Dave and MorganEve and their friends, fans and family around the world.

Love and Light for Brown Bird
