Signature Series: Bluegrass Artists – Dale Ann Bradley Band – Free Tickets Required
Friday, November 9, 2018
7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Born and raised in the coal fields in Southeastern Ky., Dale Ann Bradley has taken her Appalachian
heritage and its music throughout the world. Ms. Bradley has performed throughout the United States and Canada as well as in halls and theaters throughout Europe, Japan & South America. Major accomplishments throughout her career include ten highly acclaimed solo albums; five IBMA Female Vocalist awards; two SPBGMA Female Vocalist titles & a Grammy nomination for Bluegrass album of the year in 2016. Most recently she was inducted into the 2018 class of the prestigious Kentucky Music Hall of Fame. Dale Ann continues to perform and record with many top artists throughout the world and to write & produce music. Much of her work reflects the love she holds for her home state of Kentucky.
Dale Ann will be joined at the Signature performance by band members Matt Leadbetter on dobra; Scott Powers playing mandolin; Tim Dishman performing on bass & Jody King on banjo. Each of these esteemed musicians will deliver a performance you won’t soon forget. As bluegrass journalist and critic Donald Teplyske said, “No one is capable of doing what Bradley accomplishes. Over the years, her music has become more sophisticated, but at its core it remains pure and true.”
