Bluegrass-posterA triple-bill evening of bluegrass and old-time music – featuring The High 48s, The Roe Family Singers and Becky Schlegel – is coming to the auditorium of O’Shaughnessy Educational Center on the St. Paul campus of the University of St. Thomas.

The show starts at 7 p.m. Friday, May 10.

  • The High 48s is a traditional bluegrass band from the Twin Cities and winner of the RockyGrass Bluegrass Band Competition.
  • The Roe Family Singers is described as a good-time, old-time hillbilly band from the Mississippi-headwaters community of Kirkwood Hollow, Minn. The band blends old-time sound with a rock-and-roll influence.
  • Becky Schlegel grew up in little Kimball, S.D., and followed a career in music rather than ranching.  She’s a veteran of The Prairie Home Companion and winner of the Old Time-Bluegrass Artist of the Year Award from the Minnesota Music Academy.

Tickets for the pre-Mother’s Day show are $12 for adults and $8 for moms and students. Kids are free. There are no advance sales.
