The Bluegrass legend’s only tour stop in Maine!Grammy Award winning multi-instrumentalist Sam Bush doesn’t seem old enough to be a musical legend. And he’s not. But he is. Alternately known as the King of Telluride and the King of Newgrass, Bush has been honored by the Americana Music Association and the International Bluegrass Music Association. “It’s overwhelming and humbling,” Bush says of his lifetime achievement award from the AMA. “It goes along with the title cut of my new album, Circles Around Me, which basically says, how in the hell did we get this far? In my brain I’m still 17, but I look in the mirror and I’m 57.”

“Circles Around Me,” Bush’s seventh solo album and sixth with Sugar Hill, is an aurally inspiring mix of bluegrass favorites and complementary new songs. “I don’t know why, but it felt right at this moment in my life to go back and revisit some things that I’ve loved all my life, which is bluegrass and, unapologetically, newgrass,” says Bush. “After all these years of experimenting –and there’s experimentation on this record too –I’ve come full circle.” Tickets on sale now: $35 for this all ages show. The Strand balcony and lobby bars will be open for those ages 21+ with a valid ID. FMI STRAND THEATRE 345 MAIN STREET ROCKLAND (207) 594-0070 WWW.RocklandStrand.com
