Yet another artist slated to perform at the VPAC has been nominated for not one, but TWO Grammy awards.
America's new "first family of bluegrass," Cherryholmes, have been nominated for two Grammy's including "Best Country Instrumental Performance for their song "Sumatra," and Best Bluegrass Album for 'Cherryholmes III: Don't Believe'. This makes for a career total of four nominations, including Best Bluegrass Album nominations for every single one of their Skaggs Family Records releases.
We are very excited to be bringing Cherryholmes to the VPAC on Tuesday, March 10, 2009. More information and tickets for Cherryhomes can be found HERE.
This has been a banner year for Cherryholmes, whose album has been earning raves from NPR, The New York Times, Billboard, USA Today, Newsweek, and more. Newsweek gushed that the band "explodes with exuberant fiddle, expert banjo, and passionate harmonies". The New York Times said the band engages in "ferocious bouts of fiddling". USA Today and Time Out New York were both especially fascinated with Cia Leigh Cherryholmes, the band's eldest daughter and principal songwriter. USA Today called her "bluegrass' most stunning new female singer", while Time Out kept it simple; to them, she's a "future star".
