Belleville Roots Music Series presents Tony Trischka in a Deep Dive Earl Scruggs Show
Featuring Michael Daves on vocals and guitar, Maddie Witler on mandolin, Brittany Haas on fiddle, and Jared Engel on bass.
Banjo master, composer, and instructor, Tony Trischka, has created the Deep Dive Earl Scruggs Show as a tribute to the man who inspired him to take up the banjo, Earl Scruggs.
One of the most influential banjo players in the roots music world, Tony Trischka has achieved legendary status in his 50+ years as a consummate artist. He’s inspired generations of acoustic musicians with his technical and conceptual advances, and opened the way for such players as Béla Fleck, Alison Brown, and Noam Pikelny. His seventeen solo albums are part of every banjo-lover’s musical reference.
Tony has recorded and performed with Earl Scruggs, Pete Seeger, William S. Burroughs, The Allman Brothers, Alison Kraus, Miley Cyrus, Van Dyke Parks, and many more. A Grammy nominee, he’s received multiple awards and was recently inducted into the American Banjo Museum’s Hall of Fame. He produced Steve Martin’s Rare Bird Alert, featuring Paul McCartney and The Chicks, and was the musical director and associate producer of PBS’s The Banjo Project. In 2019, Tony made his Grand Ole Opry debut and celebrated the 10 year anniversary of his Tony Trischka School of Banjo on the ArtistWorks platform, the online banjo home for students around the world.
