"Sounds awful good to me, Rog"—Woody Guthrie
 
Starting with his eminence at Washington Square in the fifties to the present, Roger Sprung has been a leading innovator in the reshaping of traditional bluegrass. Throughout his long career, Roger has been a beacon for folk and bluegrass players as a stylist, teacher and a virtuoso player. Join us in this benefit at the Oxford Grange when Tony Trischka, ShoreGrass, Raye Hodgson and Coda Blue pay tribute to this icon of the five-string banjo.
The concert takes place at the Grange #194 Hall, 482 Oxford Road (Rt. 67), Oxford, CT (between the fire house and the Center School) at 7PM,  Saturday, September 14th. Suggested donation- $20 at the door.
"Roger Sprung, with his crackling banjo continues to surprise us with the variety of music he can make- from traditional Irish fiddle tunes to Broadway show tunes. . Here’s to him: long may he crackle!"  Pete Seeger
