Washington and Lee University’s Bluegrass Ensemble will perform its spring concert on April 4 at 7 p.m. in Stackhouse Theater on the Washington and Lee campus. The concert is open to the public, and no tickets are required.

The group of five W&L students and three staff members worked diligently all semester to prepare for this performance and are eager to entertain. The show will be available to watch online here.

The repertoire includes the Grateful Dead, Dolly Parton, The Stanley Brothers and Toto and features a version of “Shallow,” recently recognized by the Academy Awards as Best Original Song. Zack Ely ’19 will debut and original song, “Watch Me Run.”
