Bluegrass band Nu-Blu to perform at Vaudeville

Nu-Blu, a bluegrass/Americana band based in Siler City, North Carolina, will bring its lively show to the Vaudeville at 7 p.m. on Thursday, May 7. Their sound acknowledges the traditional institutions that have shaped bluegrass music, yet is innovative and daring enough to bring a fresh sparkle to contemporary acoustic music. Tickets are $15, and reservations can be requested by calling the Vaudeville at 970-945-9699. For more information, visit http://www.gvrshow.com/special-events.html.
