February 25th, Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver return to The Volcano Room with Jenni Lyn. Opening the 1 p.m. show. Doyle's been a longtime favorite here at Bluegrass Underground, always putting on a dependably great concert, backed by a variety of great young pickers and singers. Like Del McCoury or Larry Sparks, at 72, Doyle is too young to be part of the First Generation, but he came along not long after. At 18, The Tennessee native was picking banjo with Jimmy Martin, before going on to play guitar and mandolin with J.D. Crowe, including the legendary lineup that featured Red Allen. He joined the Country Gentlemen in 1971, forming the second great lineup of that band, before leaving in 1979 to lead his own group. He's also featured on the incredibly influential Bluegrass Album Band CDs and tours. Suggested listening - J.D. Crowe, Bluegrass Holiday; The Award-Winning Country Gentlemen; The Bluegrass Album Band Compact Disc (compilation); and Doyle's mandolin instrumental collection, Tennessee Dream.
