The Davis Live Music Collective is proud to present Ben Sollee and Kentucky Native performing their new album Ben Sollee and Kentucky Native.
Ben describes the album as a bluegrass record, fully aware that his is not the traditional view.
Ben continues the actual act of what bluegrass music was and is, rather than maintaining a tradition, adding a node to the tradition.
“Bluegrass music is immigrant music. It’s the music of Irish and Scottish musicians bringing their fiddle tunes; it is gospel music; it is African music; it is gypsy jazz; it is rock ‘n roll. It is all these things. What makes it unique and of Kentucky is that it was distilled by the people who lived here in Kentucky, and turned into something else.” – Ben Solle
