Greensky Bluegrass and Elephant Revival have both garnered critical acclaim and cultish fan followings through their prodigious instrumental skills, fresh takes on traditional music, and youthful, joyous performance styles. Together for a one-of-a-kind concert at DCA, Greensky Bluegrass will present its kinetic “newgrass” (featuring banjo, mandolin, guitar, dobro, and bass) alongside Elephant Revival’s “transcendental folk” (including elements of Celtic fiddle tunes, reggae grooves, jazz standards, and hip-hop beats). The Colorado-based Elephant Revival has exhilarated DCA audiences twice before; the DCA debut of Michigan-based Greensky Bluegrass will make this concert even more remarkable.
“Representing the genre for a whole new generation.” – Rolling Stone on Greensky Bluegrass
“Joyful, beautiful, humble, and a hell of a lot of fun.” – Boulder Weekly on Elephant Revival
