"A Magical Grassical Christmas" The DePue Brothers Band
“A Magical Grassical Christmas” with The DePue Brothers Band, is a non-stop celebration of traditional holiday favorites along with original tunes that will have toes tapping, hearts warmed, and spirits filled with holiday joy. This Bluegrass meets rock, meets renaissance, meets jazz, meets classical, of which the sum of all parts equals a kaleidoscope of holiday fun for everyone! The DePue Brothers – Alex, Wallace, and Jason – are classical violin virtuosos with extensive fiddling credentials as well, and are joined by banjo player of the Year Mike Mumford (IBMA award, 2013-2014), 1995 national flatpicking guitar champion Mark Cosgrove, Philadelphia Orchestra principal timpanist/percussionist Don Liuzzi, and Philly jazz bass great Kevin MacConnell.
“The DePue Brothers- Band oozes charisma and humor, and knows how to make a holiday show with all the usual trimmings fresh, fun, and entertaining - not to mention their raw talent. Do these guys have a television special yet?” - Kristin Shafel, KC Metropolis
Opening for The DePue Brothers band will be the 2018 Lyons Fiddle Festival Grand Champion.
Audience enrichment activity: Post-performance meet & greet with The DePue Brothers Band in the Miller Center lobby.
