Blue Highway Brings Bluegrass to Chuck Mathena Center
The award winning bluegrass band, Blue Highway, will take the stage at the Chuck Mathena Center on Saturday, July 23 at 7pm. There is no doubt that Blue Highway is one of the finest bluegrass bands around today. The highly esteemed group has earned 25 collective IBMA awards among its members and was voted Favorite Bluegrass Group of All Time by the readers of Bluegrass Today, April 2016. Blue Highway is praised by peers, fans and media alike. One of the most powerful descriptions of the 22-year strong band is shared by Country Standard Time News Magazine, “Wayne Taylor sings with the emotion of a man who escaped the coals mines and ain’t planning to go back. Tim Stafford continues to craft songs with depth…the instrumentation is perfect. From the get go, Jason Burleson opens with the unique style that defines bluegrass banjo. Shawn Lane exemplifies modern mandolin, yet nods to the Monroe legacy. Three lead singers…rich harmony…songs of forgotten homeless veterans, fallen heroes and heartbroken families. Blue Highway personifies modern acoustic music with respect to the tradition. Highly recommended, highly respected.” Tickets are on sale now at Chuck Mathena Center, 2 Stafford Commons, Princeton, WV 24739. You can purchase tickets online at www.chuckmathenacenter.org or by calling the Box Office at 304 425-5128. All tickets are $25. A ten percent discount is available to groups of ten or more.
