Jerry Garcia: A Bluegrass Journey

The Kody Norris Show

Join us June 1, for The Kody Norris Show!

Deeply rooted in North American folk music, Norris has crafted an original performance that harkens back and tips a hat to the traditions created by Bill Monroe, Jimmy Martin’s showmanship, the Stanley Brothers’ harmonies, performances of the Grand Ole Opry and a bit of Vaudeville. Top notch picking is center stage, but humor and visual flash are part of the entertaining package. Always clad in colorful, tailored suits adorned with rhinestones, ties, classic hats and ornate boots, the band earns its moniker as a “show.” The brand is traditional, clean cut, acoustic and always entertaining.

Tickets are on sale now.  Preferred seating is $32 and reserved seating is $25.  Doors open at 6:00 pm, and the concert begins at 7:00 pm.   Bar and concessions available.
