Cooder - White - Skaggs

Peace Concert Hall

If you're a fan of the blues, bluegrass or gospel, then you already know how exciting it is that these three musicians have come together. 

Ry Cooder, Sharon White and Ricky Skaggs - separate, they've made names for themselves with illustrious musical careers, and together... Together they are an unstoppable, musical tour-de-force. 

Cooder's stock-in-trade is the guitar, and his style ranges from the blues, to calypso tunes to cowboy ballads. He's written film scores, made a record about a cat who lives in a suitcase and even owns an ice cream truck. Turns out, his musical prowess is genetic. Cooder's son, Joachim is on the tour too, keeping everyone in time with his drum kit.

White has made a name for herself in traditional country, bluegrass and gospel music with her family band, The Whites. Originally a bluegrass group, they hit it big in the 1980s with country tunes like "Give me Back That Old Familiar Feeling" and "Pins and Needles." White's pristine voice is a perfect complement to Cooder and Skaggs' styles. 

When it comes to bluegrass and country, Skaggs has done it all. He has 12 #1 hit singles, 14 GRAMMY® Awards, eight CMA Awards, 11 IBMA Awards and nine ACM Awards. With over 30 studio albums, Skaggs is a master at his craft and a pioneer in the country/bluegrass world.
