Roland White CD Reissue Show 

When: Sat., June 5, 9 p.m. 2010
Price: $12
One of bluegrass music's finest mandolinists, Roland White recorded the supremely relaxed I Wasn't Born to Rock ā€™nā€™ Roll in 1976 with the members of his then-current band, Country Gazette. Born in Maine, White made his name in California in the '60s with The Kentucky Colonels, a classic bluegrass ensemble that featured the guitar of his brother Clarence (a sideman with and later member of The Byrds before his untimely death in 1973). After the original Kentucky Colonels split in 1965, Roland signed on as Bill Monroe's guitarist. Since then, Roland has played with the likes of Lester Flatt and become an in-demand mandolin teacher. The brand-new reissue of I Wasn't Born adds a bonus track and liner notes by former Byrds drummer Gene Parsons. It's a delight ā€” White's vocals are as guileless as his solos are laconic. Tonight's show features White and his band performing selections from I Wasn't Born along with songs from his vast back catalog.
