Presented by Chabad of Virginia
Grammy-nominee Statman is famed for his virtuosity and his innovative approach to both the Bluegrass and Klezmer music traditions, for which he received the NEA National Heritage Fellowship Award in 2012, our nation’s highest honor for traditional folk artists. Statman has collaborated with a wide range of musicians from violinist Itzhak Perlman to the Grateful Dead. The other members of the trio are Larry Eagle, drums (Bruce Springsteen, John Legend) and Jim Whitney, bass (David Grisman, Mark O’Connor); Tim Timberlake is emcee for the evening.
This concert was conceived to raise awareness about Chabad on Campus in Virginia, at Virginia Tech, University of Virginia, and James Madison University, which are part of an international network of homes-away-from-home for Jewish students. The concert is the result of a grant from Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation through its “American Masterpieces: [r]evolution Road Tour” program, which features a critically acclaimed new generation of artists working in quintessential American traditional music genres ranging from blues to bluegrass to gospel to jazz.
