Tony Trischka at Swallow Hill Music / Daniels Hall:


September 10, 2021

NPR has referred to Tony Trischka as “the great banjo liberationist.” In addition to his Grammy nominations, he’s earned a number of honors over the years, including the International Bluegrass Music Award for Banjo Player of the Year in 2007, and he was named a United States Artists Friends Fellow in 2012. His musical career started in 1965, and has not slowed down. His forthcoming album, This Favored Land, is a visionary exploration of Civil War history featuring an all-star cast. In many ways, Trischka’s collaborators join him to pay homage to an architect of progressive bluegrass—an invaluable pioneer who absorbed the slings and arrows of roots traditionalists and proved that acoustic music could accommodate imagination and individualism.

Artist: Tony Trischka

Venue: Swallow Hill Music / Daniels Hall
