With a childhood influenced by radio broadcasts of bluegrass pioneer Bill Monroe on “The Grand Ole Opry” and his family's connectivity to local gospel, Doyle Lawson hasn't strayed far from the sounds of his upbringing in his 40-plus years as a musician and songwriter. Even at 65, Lawson is considered by many as one of the best bluegrass mandolin players around. Whether performing solo or with his backing band Quicksilver, playing tunes spiritual or secular, Lawson has the instrumental chops and knack for vocal harmony to compete with anyone half his age. On the road supporting his latest album, “Lonely Street,” Lawson is scheduled to perform at the West End Assembly of God on Saturday, Jan. 23, at 7 p.m. $12.
