A Field Guide to Bluegrass 

click to enlarge night19.lede.martstuart.148.jpg

It's spring, and as the flowers begin accelerating toward the heat of the summer, so, too, do bluegrass musicians awaken from their winter slumber, string their mandolins and wander down out of the mountains hunting for berries and summer concert series. Avid music-watchers should be able to spot the full-throated Marty Stuart and His Fabulous Superlatives, identifiable by Stuart's large frill of hair and his new-traditionalist mating call, a mix of bluegrass, rockabilly and country. Stuart and his band will be performing the first show of Lewis Ginter's Groovin' in the Garden Thursday, May 11, with Jason Michael Carroll. Gates open at 5:30 p.m. Tickets are $15-$20. Call 262-9887 or visit www.richmondconcerts.net. Music-watchers should also listen for the mandolin call of the Sam Bush Band, May 12 on Brown's Island, kicking off Friday Cheers with bluegrass, Afro-pop and more at 6:30 p.m. Free. Call 788-6466 or visit www.citycelebrations.org. S
