Sam Bush at Stewart Theatre on Saturday!

On Sat., Nov. 8 at 8 p.m., PineCone will present the pioneer mandolin virtuoso Sam Bush at Stewart Theatre.
27 years ago, the producers of the first Telluride Bluegrass Festival began looking for magic. They had a terrific location. They had vision — some called it nerve. But something else was needed, and it didn’t take them long to find it. For their 2nd year, they booked the now-legendary New Grass Revival, headed by master musician and bluegrass rebel Sam Bush.
Today Bush, the only artist who has performed at 26 of the 27 legendary events, is considered more than simply the “magic” the festival producers were looking for. Sam Bush has, in fact, become the “cosmic glue” that has defined the festival’s maverick spirit from the very start. More about Sam Bush
Although he is best known as the founder and driving force behind the New Grass Revival, Bush’s ability to make music that exceeds all expectations is evident by listening to his recent work. For example: two diverse projects — Bluegrass Mandolin Extravaganza (with David Grisman, Ronnie McCoury and Ricky Skaggs, among others) and Short Trip Home (with Edgar Meyer, Joshua Bell and Mike Marshall) — were each nominated for a Grammy — for Best Bluegrass Album and for Best Classical Crossover Album, respectively.
Tickets are $12 for students. To purchase tickets, stop by the NCSU Ticket Central box office in Talley Student Center or call (919) 515-1100.
