The Seldom Scene

Seldom Scene_forwebAs one of the first bluegrass bands to embrace a non-traditional approach, The Seldom Scene is known for stretching the boundaries of bluegrass. They’ve embraced artists such as Bob Dylan and the Grateful Dead while mixing it up with Merle Haggard and traditional tunes as well. As it was from the beginning days with signature tenor singer John Duffey, the band is still known for its soaring, incredibly tight, vocal gymnastics.

With a body of work stretching back to 1971 and early collaborations with Emmylou Harris, Linda Ronstadt and Jonathan Edwards, The Seldom Scene are easily one on the most recognizable bluegrass  bands on the circuit today.

Today the band features Rickie Simpkins on banjo, Dudley Connell on guitar (formerly of the Johnson Mt. Boys), Fred Travers on dobro, Lou Reid on mandolin (formerly with Ricky Skaggs) and Ronnie Simpkins on bass (formerly with The Tony Rice Unit). Sometimes irreverent, always entertaining, the Scene’s legend continues growing into the 21st century.
