Bluegrass (Featuring a Marquette Political Philosopher)
An e-mail from our colleague Ryan Hanley, who plays mandolin for the Cream City Bluegrass Band.
Hi Bluegrass Fans and Friends!In a previous post, we asked “How good is the Cream City Bluegrass Band?” Our answer, “Pretty good. Good enough to be enjoyable and satisfying even for seasoned and discriminating bluegrass fans.” Translation: If you are any sort of Bluegrass fan, listening to the group is an excellent way of spending an evening.
Hope your fall is off to a great start! The next few weeks bring four great opportunities to hear your own Cream City Bluegrass Band!
