OPEN STUDIOS 2016 is an annual event of the EFA Studio Program that invites the public to come explore and interact with member artists in the intimate setting of their studios. It is an opportunity to see the most recent works by artists at the site of their origin and to gain meaningful insight into their process of creation. The EFA Studio Program is a vibrant and diverse community of over 75 artists working in a wide range of media and artistic sensibilities. All are professional artists with an established studio practice and recognized career. Rarely can curators, collectors, dealers, artists, and art lovers see so many internationally recognized artists working under one roof in Midtown Manhattan.

“Few groups have come as far in such a short period of time as The Steel Wheels…” – NPR’s Mountain Stage
“What sets The Steel Wheels from the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia apart from many bands is the combination of their stellar instrumentals, accentuated by the one of a kind lead vocal of [Trent] Wagler, and keenly supported by strong harmonies. Eric Brubaker on fiddle, Jay Lapp on mandolin, and Brian Dickel on bass weave in and out intricately throughout every performance.
Of course, exquisite harmonies remain a strength of the band. By making a social statement in uncertain times, listeners will want to lend their voices too. More than a decade into The Steel Wheels’ career, the simple act of singing together – something that carries them back to their Mennonite heritage – is still incredibly special. Join us for a very special musical evening. Get your tickets early as The Steel Wheels quickly sold out their previous visit.

The legend returns to the Big Room. Three-time Grammy-winner Sam Bush of Bowling Green, Kentucky is an extraordinary mandolin player, an artful songwriter, and a dynamic singer who has been wowing audiences since the early 1970s when he co-founded the pioneering progressive bluegrass band, New Grass Revival. Since then, he’s recorded more than 20 albums, including seven solo releases, been dubbed the King of Telluride in honor of his many sizzling performances at the Telluride Bluegrass Festival, and earned a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Americana Music Association. In addition, the International Bluegrass Music Association has named him Mandolin Player of the Year four times and the State of Kentucky has declared him the Father of Newgrass. Oh, and he was the National Junior Fiddle Champion three times. “I’ve been pretty lucky to play with almost every one of my heroes,” he says. “I’ve gotten to play with Bill Monroe, Doc Watson, Earl Scruggs, I’ve been to the mountain.” He’s also worked with such stalwarts as Emmylou Harris, Bela Fleck, Charlie Haden, Lyle Lovett, and Garth Brooks. Don’t miss this opportunity to see one of the most influential players of all time. Get your tickets early!
