2023 Concert Series sponsored by
A supergroup of talented bluegrass players from the Centennial State.
The act’s sets mix energetic, almost punk-rock versions of traditional songs . . . with originals and curveball covers.
The world-class musicians in Big Richard initially convened in 2021 for a festival date. The quartet showed up to what was supposed to be a one-off gig as though it had been together for years, bursting with jaw-dropping virtuosity, playfully irreverent stage banter, stunning four-part harmonies, imaginative arrangements, a refreshingly eclectic repertoire, and a healthy dose of lady rage.
Big Richard siphons from traditional and modern bluegrass, old-time music, classical, country, and pop. The four-piece masterfully mashes up genres, often using traditional fiddle tunes as instrumental flights of fancy between its original songs. The group also refreshingly reinvents beloved traditional tunes.
Bonnie Sims—mandolin and guitar
