Led by the most accomplished and awarded acoustic guitarist of his generation, you won’t want to miss the Bryan Sutton Band, at the Fall Festival. Successfully bridging bluegrass traditions of the 20th century with the dynamic roots music scene of the 21st, music innovator Bryan Sutton is a Grammy Award winner, as well as nine time winner of the IBMA’s Guitar Player of the Year. His rise from buzzed-about young sideman to first-call Nashville session musician to membership in one of history’s greatest bluegrass bands has been grounded in quiet professionalism and ever-expanding musicianship. Sutton inherited and internalized a technically demanding instrumental style to become, for young musicians of today, the same kind of model and hero that Tony Rice and Clarence White were for him. A sure-fire crowd pleaser, we are thrilled to have the Bryan Sutton Band at Strawberry this year!
