Sunday, June 16 at 2:00 pm – Bud’s Collective at 8th Chains North Brewery

Music with a Cause presents Bluegrass Concert featuring the energetic and powerful group of pickers hailing from the hills of West Virginia, Bud’s Collective. While their music reflects roots firmly planted in Bluegrass tradition, they do not hesitate to add to it in ways all their own. Playing a tasteful mix of front man Buddy Dunlap’s original material and popular hits ranging from Stevie Wonder to Alabama and all points in between, Bud’s Collective has been making waves in the music scene since the inception of the group in 2012. “This is a young, energetic band that combines compelling original material with a powerful, mature rhythmic feel. Contemporary Bluegrass music is in solid good hands with this band.” – Mike Munford of Frank Solivan and Dirty Kitchen, Grammy Nominated, IBMA Banjo Player of the Year 2013“….one of the most promising young bands in bluegrass.” – Bluegrass Today.
