Lauren produces YULEGRASS

Continue the tradition and join legendary string pioneers for another luminous evening of Yulegrass and holiday music, good cheer and wassail at three of New England’s premier listening venues.

The Yulegrass Band is comprised of Grammy winner, Bluegrass multi-instrumentalist and songwriter Tim O’Brien; elegantly expressive violinist and vocalist Lauren Rioux, West Coast guitar master and singer Scott Law (both of Darol Anger’s Republic of Strings), brilliant fiddle talent and banjoist Brittany Haas, with dynamic Vermont bassist Corey DiMario (both of Crooked Still).

The artists will create a memorable musical journey into the heart of the season, performing both old favorites and novel winter songs.  Harmony and good fellowship will abound in the relaxed and friendly atmosphere of a growing tradition not to be missed.
