Seldom Scene are talented musicians, a signature sound, and a solid repertoire, but also a sheer sense of fun. Since their inception in 1971, the Seldom Scene have thrived on playing bluegrass a little differently than everyone else. They perform traditional bluegrass classics, great original bluegrass songs of their own, and they also transform more modern songs into their own bluegrass style, such as Eric Clapton's "Lay Down Sally", J.J. Cale's "After Midnight", and the Beatles' "What Goes On". Over 40 years and 20 albums since they began playing together at weekly jam sessions, the Grammy-nominated Seldom Scene have become one of the single greatest contributors to the progression of bluegrass, while setting a new standard and attracting new audiences to the genre.
