Mandolin master Ricky Skaggs is a musical force. Now 55 years deep into his career he continues taking country and bluegrass music to new heights. If you haven’t seen him take to the stage in your lifetime you won’t want to miss this show. You don’t have to be a fan of bluegrass to enjoy and appreciate the musical journey that Skaggs will take you on. Performing with the best musicians he’s worked with to date, Ricky Skaggs and Kentucky Thunder carry a lighting speed rhythm and a passion for this distinctly American art form that can be matched.
The year 2014 marks the 55th year since Ricky struck his first chords on a mandolin, and this 14-time Grammy Award winner continues to do his part to lead the recent roots revival in music. With 12 consecutive Grammy-nominated classics behind him, all from his own Skaggs Family Records label (Bluegrass Rules! in 1998, Ancient Tones in 1999, History of the Future in 2001, Soldier of the Cross, Live at the Charleston Music Hall, and Big Mon: The Songs of Bill Monroe in 2003, Brand New Strings in 2005, Instrumentals in 2007, Salt of the Earth with The Whites in 2008, Honoring the Fathers of Bluegrass: Tribute to 1946 and 1947 in 2009 and Ricky Skaggs Solo: Songs My Dad Loved along with Mosaic in 2010), the diverse and masterful tones made by the gifted Skaggs come from a life dedicated to playing music that is both fed by the soul and felt by the heart.
