Chicago Stage Review – 2010 Beatlegras Performance Review

BEATLEGRAS is no one-trick-pony, but rather a collective of three tremendous musicians. In tuned with each other, their song choices and their musical deviations; they deliver innovation as well as homage. At their best, the music of the Beatles becomes the playground for these children from other musical times and other musical locations. They reinvent the swings and slides of this playground, bringing their own games to the park with brilliant bluegrass and exceptional jazz. Hints of Béla Fleck and the Flecktones, echoes of Windham Hill artists and a touch of Leo Kottke can be heard but BEATLEGRAS its own unique musical creature. – Review and Photo by Venus Zarris
