The February 20 Bluegrass Concert featuring Eddie and Martha Adcock and Tom Gray has been cancelled. Martha has had a medical emergency which will prevent her from performing. Online tickets will be refunded though the Brown Paper Tickets website. If you bought your ticket at the box office you can stop by for a refund or call (904) 277-3455 for a credit towards a future show. We are sorry for the inconvenience.
Truly pioneers of contemporary bluegrass music, Eddie and Martha and Tom return to Amelia Musical Playhouse as an encore to their sold-out performance in 2017. Eddie’s unique banjo and lead guitar and Tom’s fluid bass lines complement Martha’s beautiful voice and rhythm guitar, spiced with Eddie’s unpredictable wit.
Eddie and Tom are the surviving half of the “Classic” configuration of the Country Gentlemen, which modernized bluegrass in the 1960s. Eddie and Martha, with their groundbreaking band II (Second) Generation created a new form of musical hybrid known as Newgrass in the 1970s and ’80s. Meanwhile, Tom was part of the very popular Seldom Scene, which further brought bluegrass up to date in the ’70s and ’80s. For the last 15 years, they have performed as a trio at festivals and concerts domestically and internationally.
