Banjo Dan's Bluegrass Revue

Friday, June 9, 7:30pm

Location: Haskell Opera House
Derby Line, VT / Stanstead, QC

Tickets: All seats $20

New England’s top bluegrass show returns to the Haskell Opera House on Friday, June 9 at 7:30 PM. Since 2013 a top draw at this fabled theatre straddling the US/Canada border at Derby Line, Vermont and Stanstead, Quebec, the show has moved to an early summer slot for the first time. Bluegrass fans on both sides of the line are invited to kick off a summer of great music with New England bluegrass at its best.

The Revue once again combines the talents of two of the best in the business. Bob Amos & Catamount Crossing has emerged as the top bluegrass band in the Northeast. Led by award-winning songwriter Bob Amos, this band has it all. The vocal mix, featuring Bob and Sarah Amos, runs the gamut from hard-edged to bluesy, dynamic to soulful. The instrumental work on banjo, fiddle and mandolin is brilliant. The band’s last two CDs have gained several “best of” rewards and their stage show never fails to excite audiences wherever they play.

The Sky Blue Boys – Banjo Dan and Willy Lindner – carry on in the tradition of the legendary Banjo Dan and the Mid-nite Plowboys, who first brought bluegrass to the Haskell in 2000 and enjoyed a huge following around the Northeast for four decades. Augmented this year by the stellar Carrie Cook on bass, they offer up a fascinating mix of traditional and original songs, capturing the spirit of the pioneers who put this stirring American music on the map in the middle part of the last century.

“This is a dream team,” says producer Dan Lindner. “I don’t believe fans of this music will find a better show in the Northeast this summer, and I know for sure they won’t find a better place in which to hear it. The Haskell Opera House has all the charm and ambience an audience or performer could ask for and has been my favorite venue for years. We’re looking forward to seeing all our Canadian and Northeast Kingdom fans and delivering another dynamite show this year.”

The show has since been adapted for television, starring Rue McClanahan, and has spawned six sequels and three spin-offs.
