2019 Bluegrass & Green Acres

Meet the Bluegrass & Green Acres Band

Our musical entertainment for the 2019 Bluegrass & Green Acres features three established and well recognized artists with national reputations. Put them together for one special evening - and you have some memorable music!

Let's get to know our band members:

Aaron Jonah Lewis (fiddle and banjo) 

Based in Detroit, Lewis has appeared on dozens of recordings, from bluegrass and old time to traditional jazz, contemporary experimental and even Turkish classical music projects. He's a multi-instrumentalist who has won awards at the Clifftop Appalachian String Band Festival (including First Place Neotraditional Band in 2008 and 2015) and at the Galax Old Fiddlers Convention (and First Place Bluegrass Fiddle in 2007 and 2018). Aaron is looking forward to coming back to Toledo.

Mark Lavengood (dobro)

The featured entertainer from the 2018 Bluegrass & Green Acres event, Lavengood offers three key attributes with every performance - wild energy on stage, aptitude on many instruments and a big heart. The Grand Rapids, Michigan-based musician is known for his slide guitar and dobro skills. His music is refined, full of personality and fun to listen to.

Eric Lambert (guitar)

Chicago-area native Lambert mixes feel-good Americana infused with bluegrass, blues, rock and soul. He has amassed a career of more than 40 years, and holds a 2015 Best Entertainer Chicago Music Award.
