Lotus Dickey (1911-1989) was a traditional singer, songwriter, and fiddler from southern Indiana (Orange County) who inspired a generation of performers and Bloomington’s Lotus World Music and Arts Festival. Stephen and Nancy Dickey, son and daughter-in-law of Lotus and members of Grease Gravy (a country-bluegrass string band), will perform some of his songs during this concert honoring Lotus’ legacy. The event will be free and open to the public.
