This special event brings Common Ground to The Orpheum Film and Performing Arts Center. Common Ground On The Hill is a traditional, roots-based music, arts and humanities organization founded in 1994 by Executive Director Walt Michael in Westminster, MD. This concert will feature musicians who have been part of the Common Ground experience, celebrating the ethnic & cultural traditions of Folk, Bluegrass and Acoustic Music.

Walt Michael is considered to be a virtuoso of tremendous influence in the revival of the hammered dulcimer. Walt’s wide repertoire ranges from old-time Southern Appalachian, to Celtic, to breath-taking original compositions.

Tony Trischka is considered to be the consummate banjo artist and perhaps the most influential banjo player in the roots music world. For more than 45 years, his stylings have inspired a whole generation of bluegrass and acoustic musicians.

Professor Louie & The Crowmatix repertoire is steeped in rock‘n’roll, blues, gospel and American roots music and features a compelling collection of original and traditional tunes.

Greg Dayton is a singer/songwriter and guitarist with influences from acoustic blues to classic rock.
