WHITE MILLS - The Earls of Leicester are set to bring their Bluegrass music to Wildflower Music Festival, Saturday night, July 20.
The performance is presented by Jerry Douglass, Grammy winning Bluegrass musician.
When The Earls of Leicester formed, their mission was to preserve and promote the legacy of bluegrass legends Lester Flatt and Earl Scruggs to a modern audience. Their debut album earned a Grammy Award in 2013 for Best Bluegrass Album and they have earned six awards from the International Bluegrass Music Association. The group is composed of legendary all-star performers Jerry Douglas, Shawn Camp, Johnny Warren, Charlie Cushman, Jeff White and Daniel Kimbro. These exceptional instrumentalists and vocalists will make the music of Flatt and Scruggs sound amazingly authentic.
