Michael Daves 17th Rockwood Anniversary Celebration
Bluegrass guitarist and singer Michael Daves celebrates the 17th anniversary of his residency at Rockwood Music Hall on Wednesday, December 6 with special guests. Daves began his residency at the Rockwood in December, 2006, playing Stage 1 nearly every Tuesday until the 2020 shutdown (over 650 shows!). When the venue reopened in 2021 Daves resumed the residency on a monthly basis with Wednesday night shows on Stage 2 featuring different special guests.
Heralded as “a leading light of the New York bluegrass scene” by the New York Times, Daves has garnered attention for his work with Trischka, Steve Martin, and Chris Thile, with whom he shares a Grammy nomination for their 2011 album Sleep With One Eye Open. Daves’ unruly interpretations of American roots music standards have won him a place of almost fanatical admiration as a "renegade traditionalist."
