The RFD Boys
Tuesday, July 2 @ 7pm
The RFD Boys have been amazing Ann Arbor with their bluegrass musicianship and skill since 1969, bringing together mandolin, acoustic guitar, bass, and fiddle into rich arrangements and storytelling songs. They’ve been called “the house band of Michigan bluegrass” by The Ark, where they have been the house bluegrass band for 30 years. They’ve toured all over Michigan and the Midwest, and as far away as Germany, France, Australia, and Malta. In the last three decades they’ve shared stages with a who’s who of bluegrass and country musicians, from Bill Monroe and Ralph Stanley to Ricky Skaggs and Randy Travis. On their website they mention appreciating the return of The Pretzel Bell, the reimagined Main St. spot based on the historic restaurant and bar where they were the house band from ‘73 to ‘84, making the old new. Come to the Rackham stage for a celebration of Ann Arbor’s finest bluegrass musicians.
