Formed in 2011 by Dara and Tony Wray, Blue Mafia presents a fresh approach to the traditional bluegrass sound. The line-up includes Curtis Bumgarner banjo; Mike Gregory, bass; Kent Todd, vocals and fiddle; Dara Wray, mandolin and vocals; and Tony Wray, vocals and guitar. Their most recent release, Hanging Tree, features a new take on bluegrass favorites and carefully crafted originals.
This program is presented as part of the annual museum celebration Bluegrass and Beyond, supported by the Crump family and Cotten Music Center in honor of George A. and Marjorie S. Crump, and takes place in the Museum's Ford Theater.
