Deep River Rising

Deep River Rising with David Holt, Bryan Sutton & T Michael Coleman 

When: Fri., Jan. 6, 8 p.m. 2012
Price: $25-27

The three Grammy-winning musicians that comprise Deep River Rising—David Holt, Bryan Sutton and T. Michael Coleman—have frequently played alongside Doc Watson, but they use this project to extend their collaboration as Watson's own schedule slows. The trio's repertoire mixes originals with traditional songs, highlighting the distinctive abilities of each member while paying respect to the folk traditions upon which they've built their careers.

An esteemed ethnomusicologist, raconteur and multi-instrumentalist, Holt hosts the PBS series Folkways while touring and recording with a handful of acts. He's performed with legends such as Bill Monroe, Earl Scruggs and Roy Acuff. Sutton is a guitarist (a six-time IBMA-winning picker to boot) who shot to fame after joining Ricky Skaggs' Kentucky Thunder, though he's since done session work with everyone from Dolly Parton to Faith Hill. Coleman held down the bass in the Seldom Scene for around a decade before moving into production and composition, working with Marty Stuart, Mike Auldridge and Johnny Cash. With such stacked resumes, it's no surprise that the three members stay quite busy outside of their newest venture. —Spencer Griffith
