The 14-time Grammy Award winner Ricky Skaggs and his elite ensemble of world-class pickers take over The Appel Room for a blazing evening of bluegrass. A mandolin prodigy, Skaggs had played with legends like Bill Monroe, Flatt & Scruggs, and Ralph Stanley by the time he was a teenager. In 1981, he took over the mainstream country charts with “Crying My Heart Out Over You” and reigned supreme for the rest of the decade, with three straight number one albums and 12 number one songs. He returned to his roots in 1997 with the release of Bluegrass Rules! on his own Skaggs Family label, leading to a string of Grammys and solidifying his status as “a legend of the genre” (Seattle Times).
