What does it take for a bluegrass band to remain popular for more than four decades? For the Seldom Scene, it’s taken not only talented musicians, a signature sound and a solid repertoire, but also a sheer sense of fun. In 2014, the longtime pillars of the bluegrass world returned with the aptly titled Long Time… Seldom Scene. The newly recorded collection features fresh interpretations of 16 often-requested tunes and is the band’s first studio album since the Grammy-nominated Scenechronized in 2007. It’s a family reunion in all the best ways, featuring the current and longest-running lineup, joined by founding members Tom Gray and John Starling and guests Chris Eldridge, Emmylou Harris and Rickie Simpkins.

Lime Kiln Arts, Inc. is a non-profit (501c3), operating at Lime Kiln Theater in Lexington. It opened in 1984 and is rooted in and inspired by the magic of a natural, outdoor theater. After a brief hiatus that started in 2012, Lime Kiln Theater is thrilled to present its third straight summer season of live music featuring local, regional and national acts.
