2024 Down Home Concerts: Alice Gerrard 90th Birthday Celebration


Alice Gerrard is one of the most important old-time and bluegrass musicians performing today. She is a prolific songwriter and a keeper of traditional tunes in her adopted home in the Piedmont of North Carolina. She learned her craft directly from friends and mentors that include Elizabeth Cotten, Hazel Dickens, Tommy Jarrell, Fred Cockerham, Luther Davis and Doc Boggs. In honor of Alice’s 90th Birthday, PineCone hosts a performance with Alice, backed up by the band she used on her new record Sun to Sun.
