This concert is sponsored by Asset Solutions Corp. Led by a true legend, Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver is simply one of the most acclaimed groups in bluegrass, with nearly forty albums to its credit. The group has won and been nominated for numerous Grammy, Dove, IBMA, Inspirational Country Music Association, and Society for the Preservation of Bluegrass Music of America (SPBGMA) awards. Lawson, a native of Sullivan County, Tennessee, was inducted into the International Bluegrass Music Hall of Fame in 2012. After working with great bluegrass musicians like Jimmy Martin, J.D. Crowe, and Ricky Skaggs, in 1979 Lawson ventured out on his own to front Quicksilver. The group soon began setting the standard for great bluegrass gospel music while garnering universal respect for the group’s exquisite vocal arrangements. Quicksilver has been a training ground for such current day bluegrass luminaries as Lou Reid, Terry Baucom, Russell Moore, Scott Vestal, and Ray Deaton. In addition to Lawson (on mandolin and vocals), the current line-up for Quicksilver features Josh Swift (dobro, guitar and vocals), Joe Dean (banjo and vocals), Dustin Pyrtle (guitar and vocals), Eli Johnston (bass and vocals), and Stephen Burwell (fiddle and vocals).
