When you dare to combine genres of music, you dare to combine more than simply sound and style. An audacious blend of music can bring together diverse cultures, and in the realm of American society there are few backgrounds more disparate than that of small-town bluegrass and the deep urban flavor of hip-hop. On Thursday night, the 2720 Cherokee Performing Arts Center made easy work of the task, lead by the prototypical alchemist of the genres, Gangstagrass.

"Tender Is the Night"
Old Man Luedecke
True North

"Tender Is the Night" is the fifth solo collection from Old Man (Chris) Luedecke, and it feels like some of the musical ideas he's been working with are really beginning to gel. His writing has always been very strong, remaining true to the roots of American folk and country music, though dealing with modern themes and ideas.
