Sam Bush and his Band roll into Boston's Wilbur Theatre on Saturday, October 26th at 7pm. The 57 year old Bush has been a Grammy Award winning multi-instrumentalist, and his tour is in support of the album 'Circles Around Me'. This latest album from Bush includes collaborations with several musicians, such as Del McCoury, Edgar Meyer and Jerry Douglas.
A child prodigy on the fiddle, he placed first at the national fiddle contest in Weister, ID, three times in a row. Bush made his first appearance on the Grande Ole Opry in Nashville TN back in 1969.
Bush formed the New Grass Revival in 1972. Over the next 17 years, Bush and the New Grass Revival revolutionized the music of the hill country, incorporating everything from gospel and reggae to rock and modern jazz into their tradition-rooted sound. Bush has also collaborated with Emmy Lou Harris, Bela Fleck and Leon Russell.
