Ivy Tech Waldron Rose Firebay

Cardinal Stage presents “The Roommate” January 30 – February 22 at the Ivy Tech Waldron Rose Firebay. Recently-divorced Sharon is searching for a roommate to share her Iowa home.

But as Sharon begins to uncover Robyn’s secrets, they spark a desire to transform her own life completely. This smart new comedy tackles the challenges of mid-life reinvention, with unexpected results. “The Roommate tugs at the heartstrings as much as it tickles the funny bone.” ~ Louisville.com

Sam Bush

08:00 pm
Buskirk-Chumley Theater

Sam Bush is a true American music legend and is considered an originator of progressive bluegrass music. With three Grammy wins, 16 Grammy nominations, numerous awards from the International Bluegrass Music Association, and an Americana Music Association Lifetime Achievement Award under his belt, he continues to lead the charge in improvised string music.

The Father of Newgrass has long since established himself as roots royalty, revered for both his solo and sideman work, which includes time with Emmylou Harris, Lyle Lovett, and Béla Fleck. Punch Brothers, Steep Canyon Rangers, and Greensky Bluegrass are just a few present-day bluegrass vanguards among so many musicians he’s influenced. His performances are annual highlights of the festival circuit, with Bush’s joyous perennial appearances at the town’s famed bluegrass fest earning him the title of “King of Telluride.”

“With this band I have now I am free to try anything. Looking back at the last 50 years of playing newgrass, with the elements of jazz improvisation and rock-&-roll, jamming, playing with New Grass Revival, Leon, and Emmylou; it’s a culmination of all of that,” says Bush. “I can unapologetically stand onstage and feel I’m representing those songs well.”
