This great bluegrass pioneer and giant is still going strong, and the East Hartford venue is a wonderful chance to witness a legend.

A wonderful fiddler, singer and songwriter from Texas, now living in NYC by way of Berklee School of Music. She's just stepping out from beneath the long shadow of her mentor and musical partner Chip Taylor, and her solo album was a revelation.
