After many years navigating the outskirts of bluegrass and acoustic music, Tim O’Brien’s dusky, unmistakable vocal timbre and instrumental stylings have this time landed with two feet squarely back in bluegrass.
Born in Wheeling, West Virginia on March 16, 1954, Grammy winning singer songwriter and multi instrumentalist Tim O’Brien grew up singing in church and school, and after seeing Doc Watson on TV, became a lifelong devotee of old time and bluegrass music. Opening act The Burying Ground formed in 2014 as a duo, but Woody Forster and Devora Laye are often accompanied by a rotating cast of masterful session and backing musicians. They are steeped in influences from 1920’s ragtime, country & western, Mississippi blues and New Orleans jazz.
