Edgar Loudermilk, a leader of the contemporary bluegrass movement, brings his band and the great guitarist Jeff Autry to Bloomingdale.
The seasoned bass player and tenor and bass vocalist followed in the musical footsteps of his father and grandfather, singing in his family’s band when he was just nine years old. Loudermilk stuck with his family band until he was 20 and went on to join Carolina Crossfire. Over the years, he’s earned a following by playing with Rhonda Vincent & the Rage, Marty Raybon & Full Circle, and IIIrd Tyme Out.
Loudermilk has released two solo albums, My Big Chance Tomorrow and Georgia Maple, and a duo record with Dave Adkins, Adkins & Loudermilk. The latter project earned an International Bluegrass Music Association Emerging Artist nomination.
From originals to bluegrass standards, Loudermilk, Glen Crain, Zach Autry, and Jeff Autry show top chops with a deep love of tradition in their concerts.
