Wayne Henderson embodies the musical heritage of the Blue Ridge. A lifelong resident of Rugby, VA, Wayne took up the guitar at the age of 5 and made his first attempts at building instruments at 10. By his teens Wayne was winning ribbons at all of the region’s guitar contests and building guitars and mandolins that are prized by musicians and collectors around the world. In 1995 he was honored with a National Heritage Fellowship, and recognized as a living national treasure. While almost every guitarist who performs lightning-fast fiddle tunes does so with a flatpick, Wayne invented his own "pinch pickin’" style, and uses fingerpicks to give him his unique rhythmic approach and an immediately identifiable sound. Wayne will be joined by mandolin virtuoso Randy Greer. If you’ve been bitten by the "O Brother" Bug, this is one concert you can’t afford to miss.
