Rhapsody in Bluegrass comes to JCC

The Annie Moses Band and The Hall Sisters will perform at the Paul A. Johnston Auditorium at 7 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 11, on the main campus of Johnston Community College in Smithfield.

The Annie Moses Band will perform Rhapsody in Bluegrass: The Art of American Music, a panoramic exploration of America and her music. Featuring favorites from Aaron Copland, George Gershwin and other American originals, Rhapsody in Bluegrass fuses Appalachian bluegrass, Irish fiddle, beloved classical themes and roots music to create a beautiful and transporting concert experience.

With accolades that include more than 1,200 hours on PBS and recent debuts at Carnegie Hall and the Grand Ole Opry, the Annie Moses Band brings a distinctive style to American music.

The Annie Moses Band is an ensemble of six instrumentalists and vocalists. Their sound fuses American roots, folk rock, and jazz in performances that feature strings, keyboards, guitar and rhythm. The family that makes up the Annie Moses Band is musically diverse – their converging artistry on stage creates a unique style.

In 2012 The Hall Sisters performed at Carnegie Hall with the Annie Moses Band and also participated in their Fine Arts Summer Academy – an intensive music program in Nashville, Tenn. The Hall Sisters have become crowd favorites on Country Music Showcase “Where Stars Get Their Start’ since their debut in 2012.
