Bluegrass Saturday Night – Nov. 13 2021
  Featuring Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver

McKinney Performing Arts Center
111 N. Tennessee Street, McKinney, Texas  75069

A sold-out crowd was on hand for our Bluegrass Saturday Night 2021 in historic downtown McKinney Texas, the final performance ever in Texas by GRAMMY-nominated Doyle Lawson & QuicksilverBluegrass Music Hall of Fame member Doyle Lawson is one of the most important architects of the bluegrass genre. Highly awarded and recognized over the course of his impressive 58-year career, Lawson is one of the most respected and revered performers in bluegrass music. 

Many consider Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver as the “Ivy League” of bluegrass, with Lawson as the dean of students; no other band leader has mentored more musicians who have gone on to become major players in the bluegrass industry and beyond.  His show included a varied array of many important tunes from his Quicksilver years. 

Opening the show for Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver were the “At The Very Least” banjo brothers The Gerald Jones and Alan Tompkins, who provided a quick twin-banjo opening for the capacity crowd.  Pictures from the show are in our Special Events Photo Gallery.  This event was funded in part by a grant from the City of McKinney Arts Commission, with thanks from the Bluegrass Heritage Foundation.  Photos courtesy of Julie Tucker, Alan Tompkins, and Kitty Antonsen.

keeping the doors open isn't free. All contributions are greatly appreciated.
