The Seldom Scene

  • Their obvious skills: playing the fiery, progressive bluegrass that has made them, according to, “…one of the most influential—if not the most influential—bluegrass band of their time.”
  • Slightly less obvious skill: puns
  • Some of their finest examples of both: albums Scenic Roots, Scene It All, and 2007’s Grammy-nominated Scenechronized
  • How they got their start: as a non-touring band in the early ’70s, when their most frequent gig was jamming in founding member Ben Eldridge’s basement
  • Another house they’ve played in: the big famous white one on Pennsylvania Avenue
  • Their instruments: banjo, guitar, mandolin, bass, and dobro, or resonator guitar
  • Their set lists: a blend of traditional tunes and unexpected pop, rock, and jazz songs, such as “Stompin’ at the Savoy” and “After Midnight”
  • Their essential tracks: the foreboding “Muddy Waters,” the appropriately rolling and tumbling “Rollin’ and Tumblin’,” and a jubilant take on CCR’s “Bad Moon Rising”<p>

The Borland Center for Performing Arts

Named in honor of golf-course designer Bruce Borland, who died in a plane accident in 1999, the Borland Center for Performing Arts swings open its doors to the community by focusing on family values. Concerts, plays, and recitals are just a few of the events that coax guests into the venue’s 10,000 square feet of space, which harbors a 500-seat theater and a multipurpose ballroom that doubles as an indoor practice field for local cribbage teams on rainy days.
