The Seldom Scene in Concert!

Presented by Belleville Roots Music Series at Belleville Roots Music Series

The Seldom Scene is an American bluegrass band formed in 1971 in Bethesda, Maryland. The Scene has been instrumental in starting the progressive bluegrass movement as their shows include bluegrass versions of country music, rock, and even pop. What does it take for a bluegrass band to remain popular for more than four decades? For The Seldom Scene, it’s taken not only talented musicians, a signature sound, and a solid repertoire, but also a sheer sense of fun.
The band has thrived on playing bluegrass a little differently than everyone else. If other bands used a fiddler, the Seldom Scene used a Dobro; if others relied on old standards, the Seldom Scene played rock classics like J.J. Cale’s “After Midnight.” Through skilled musicianship and an urban approach to bluegrass, the Seldom Scene has become one of the most influential – if not the most influential – bluegrass band of the last 30 years.
The current lineup includes:
Guitar/Dudley Connell
Mandolin, Guitar/Lou Reid
Banjo, Fiddle/Ron Stewart
Dobro/Fred Travers
Bass/Ronnie Simpkins
