Lexington's Bluegrass Collective Next on Jubilee
Lexington’s Bluegrass Collective proves that, sometimes, pickin’ with friends can grow into something truly special. The band — which started out as a jam-fest among buddies on guitar player Dove Gevedon’s porch — now is a staple at Lexington-area bluegrass festivals. The next episode of Jubilee showcases the band’s performance at the 2013 Festival of the Bluegrass in Lexington.
For seven years, from 2000-2007, Bluegrass Collective performed weekly Sunday shows at Lexington’s Fishtank bar. In the process, they found their groove and became a “must-see” for local bluegrass lovers. Now, the group performs regularly at Willie’s Locally Known and other area venues. In May, they were one of the headliners at this year’s inaugural Moonshiner’s Ball held at Berea’s HomeGrown HideAways campground.
With a toe-tapping, traditional bluegrass sound that mixes musicianship with soaring harmonies, the group’s hits like “On and On,” “Foggy Mountain Top,” and “Liza Jane” keep bluegrass fans coming back for more. Bluegrass Collective includes Brandon Bowlds on banjo; Dove Gevedon on guitar; Roddy Puckett on bass; Danny Williams on mandolin; and Don Rogers on fiddle.
