The Brooklyn Bluegrass Bash is a meeting of “the old Turks and the new Turks,” as organizer Michael Daves puts it. Tony Trischka, who was nominated for a Grammy in 2007 for Double Banjo Spectacular, will be joined by the great Kenny Kosek on fiddle and Jen Larson on vocals. Andy Statman, who recently won a National Heritage Award—the country’s highest honor for a folk musician—will play a set of elegantly klezmer-inflected bluegrass with his trio. They’ll be followed by an all-star line-up of younger artists whom they’ve inspired: Chris Thile, Noam Pikelny, and Chris Eldridge of the Punch Brothers; Aofie O’Donovan of Crooked Still and Goat Rodeo; Kristin Andreassen of Uncle Earl; and Daves himself, whose duo album with Thile was nominated for a Grammy this year. It may be the greatest gathering of bluegrass musicians in New York in a generation.

Brooklyn Bluegrass Bash is a benefit concert presented by the 4th Mission for the ceiling restoration campaign of Old First Reformed Church in Park Slope, Brooklyn.
