Bluegrass acoustic concert set for March 9

CEDAR CITY–Iron County Acoustic Music Association (ICAMA) presents a live acoustic concert with Cedar City’s favorite bluegrass musician, Marty Warburton, with help from some amazing bluegrass pickers, Ryan Tilby, Drew Williams, and John Landon. It will be held on Friday, March 9, at Community Presbyterian Church Fellowship Hall, 2279 N Wedgewood Lane, Cedar City. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the music starts at 7 p.m.

The lineup features Marty Warburton on guitar and banjo, Ryan Tilby on mandolin, dobro, and banjo, Drew Williams on fiddle, guitar, and mandolin, and John Landon on bass.

Marty Warburton is a two-time Utah State banjo champion, a Pine Creek records recording artist, a sought-after emcee for music festivals nationwide and the front man for Marty Warburton and Home Girls.

Ryan Tilby is a first-call sideman and session musician playing with bands all over the U.S. as well as the recording engineer for St. George’s Spiral Studios.

Drew Williams played in Nashville for a number of years, has toured nationally and internationally, and is currently the principal at Tuachan High School for the Performing Arts.

John Landon has long experience playing bass and is currently the bass player in Home Girls.

Together, these bluegrass players have decades of performing experience. This show is an encore performance with (most of) the musicians from their May 2017 ICAMA appearance. Expect to hear bluegrass standards and some original arrangements of bluegrass and Americana music. This event promises to be a toe-tapping, hand clapping, family-friendly good time.

A suggested donation of $5 per person goes to the musicians and helps promote live acoustic music in Iron County.
