Grammy-winner John Jorgenson and his Bluegrass Band, straight from a packed house performance at the Grand Ole Opry, are set for a night of incredible music. We’re thrilled to be heading back to The Ellen, said Jorgenson. The acoustics are perfect and I like to call it Carnegie West. I’m truly looking forward to introducing our Bluegrass Band to Bozeman. Joining Jorgenson are Herb Pedersen on banjo, guitar and vocals; Jon Randall on guitar and vocals; and Mark Fain on bass. Herb Pedersen was a member of legendary Bluegrass band The Dillards as well as Bluegrass super-group Old and In the Way. A highly sought after singer and musician, he has performed with such music icons as Jerry Garcia, Gram Parsons, Linda Ronstadt, Emmylou Harris, Dolly Parton, Jackson Browne, John Denver, Dan Fogelberg, James Taylor, Vince Gill, Stephen Stills, John Prine and Kris Kristofferson.
