Eddie & Martha Adcock with Tom Gray
February 20, 2019
Truly pioneers of contemporary bluegrass music, Eddie and Martha and Tom return to Amelia Musical Playhouse as an encore to their sold-out performance in 2017. Eddie’s unique banjo and lead guitar and Tom’s fluid bass lines complement Martha’s beautiful voice and rhythm guitar, spiced with Eddie’s unpredictable wit.
Eddie and Tom are the surviving half of the “Classic” configuration of the Country Gentlemen, which modernized bluegrass in the 1960s. Eddie and Martha, with their groundbreaking band II (Second) Generation created a new form of musical hybrid known as Newgrass in the 1970s and ’80s. Meanwhile, Tom was part of the very popular Seldom Scene, which further brought bluegrass up to date in the ’70s and ’80s. For the last 15 years, they have performed as a trio at festivals and concerts domestically and internationally.
