The Berea College Bluegrass Ensemble will perform in a free concert March 3 at Hindman Settlement School.

Hindman Settlement School will present a concert with the Berea College Bluegrass Ensemble on Tuesday, March 3, starting at 6:30 p.m. This event is free and open to the public. All are welcome to attend and no advance tickets are required.

The concert will be held in the Great Hall of the Mike Mullins Cultural Heritage Center at Hindman Settlement School. For over a decade, the Berea College Bluegrass Ensemble has thrilled audiences with their shining talents and fun, lively performances. The group puts on a great show that features bluegrass music and old time Appalachian music.

During their time at Berea College, student band members show off their picking and singing skills on stage in exchange for course credit, lifelong friendships and the opportunity to travel and share their music with audiences around the world. The band’s founder and director Al White is a well-known bluegrass musician, having performed with groups such as the Bluegrass Alliance and the McLain Family Band. Al White plays banjo and fiddle in the group and the current student band members are Jessie Lawson (lead vocals and upright bass); Nathan Jose (guitar); Hannah From (vocals, guitar); Elijah Hicks (vocals, mandolin); and Reuben Hicks (fiddle).

This event is presented by Hindman Settlement School’s Traditional Arts Program. For more information, contact Sam Gleaves at (606) 785-5475 or email sam@hindman.org.
