Now 50 years later, Beatlemania Magic will take you right back to those days with a program of the Beatle’s greatest songs, from the Ed Sullivan Show to Sargent Pepper and Abbey Road. If you missed seeing Beatlemania Magic the last time they appeared at the Succop, you don’t want to miss them again!

Greensky Bluegrass, with Swear and Shake

The five members of Greensky Bluegrass have forged a defiant, powerful sound that, while rooted in classic stringband Americana, extends outwards with a fearless, exploratory zeal. The tension and release between these components – tradition and innovation, prearranged songs and improvisation, acoustic tones and electric volume – is what makes them so thrillingly dynamic, in concert and on record. You must be 17 years or older to attend this event.
