Crescent Beer Distributor presents Nashville newgrass band Graves Bloodline on Saturday, August 10, at Struthers Library Theatre.

Bryan Graves is the son of world-renowned Bluegrass and Country Hall Of Famer “Uncle Josh Graves,” who is responsible for introducing the dobro into bluegrass music after joining Lester Flatt, Earl Scruggs and the Foggy Mountain Boys in 1955.

In the spirit of Uncle Josh, Graves Bloodline challenges the old ways with their brand of “Newgrass.” Joined by Rob Evans (7 Bridges), Tommy Tipton, Kimberly Bib, David Mansfield III, and Kelsey Crews, Bryan (7 Bridges) pays homage to his dad through his love and passion for Bluegrass music.

Graves Bloodline will be performing songs from their forthcoming release “Garcias Grass is Blue,” a collection of Old and in the Way and Garcia/Grisman standards.
