IT’S TIME TO PARTY (AGAIN).

Join us for another exciting night of music, friends, and good times in old Virginia City’s historic Piper’s Opera House at CCI’s 9th Annual “A Night to Imagine” Fundraising Concert!

This year we are proud to welcome The Jerry Douglas Trio to the Piper’s stage!

Friday, April 13th
Doors 7:30pm, Show 8pm
12 B Street, Virginia City

Dobro master and 14-time GRAMMY® winner Jerry Douglas is to the resonator guitar what Jimi Hendrix was to the electric guitar: elevating, transforming, and reinventing the instrument in countless ways. In addition to being widely recognized as the foremost master of the Dobro, Jerry Douglas is a freewheeling, forward-thinking recording artist whose output incorporates elements of bluegrass, country, rock, jazz, blues and Celtic into his distinctive musical vision.

Called “dobro’s matchless contemporary master” by The New York Times, Jerry Douglas is one of the most innovative recording artists in music, both as a solo artist and member of groundbreaking bands including J.D. Crowe & the New South, the Country Gentlemen, Boone Creek, the Grammy-winning The Earls of Leicester, and Strength In Numbers. Douglas’ distinctive sound graces more than 1500 albums, including discs released by Garth Brooks, Paul Simon, James Taylor, Elvis Costello, Earl Scruggs, and Ray Charles, among many others.

As he continues his incalculable influence on Americana, bluegrass and their many related genres, Douglas forges as a true pioneer in American music.

Last year, The Jerry Douglas Band debuted their album “What If”. Throughout the album’s 11-tracks, “What If” decisively merges jazz inclinations with the bluegrass, country, blues, swing, rock, and soul that Douglas spent his life absorbing and performing, forging a sound that flies beyond the boundaries of anything he–or anyone else–has done before.
