The Grascals' career has taken them from opening for Dolly Parton to acting as her backing band to being named the Society for the Preservation of Bluegrass Music of America's 2010 Bluegrass Band of the Year. Accessible and lively, Grascals shows cover a wide range of bluegrass, from country hits and bluegrass classics to fresh takes on pop tunes, like their fan-favorite rendition of "Last Train to Clarksville." They've performed on The Tonight Show, at President Obama's inaugural ball at the Smithsonian and more than 150 times at the Grand Ole Opry -- and now you can experience this Grammy-winning supergroup live on the Mayne Stage.

This presentation featured classical and non classsical musical instrumentation. The music was improvisational in that the conductor wrote a new musical language based upon what she wanted the musicians to do. This was about as 'far out' of a performance as I have witnessed. Unless one is a music academic and a revolutionary one at that, one may find it difficult to appreciate.
The music at times was too loud for the Martin Center - an outdoor venue may have been better.
Wouldn't do it again, even with complimentary tickets.
