Bluegrass legends RFD Boys take center stage at The Ark

The house band of Michigan bluegrass, The RFD Boys have been delighting southeastern Michigan audiences since 1969 with their fabulous musicianship and sly, exquisitely timed between-song humor.

They will play The Ark at 8 p.m. on Friday, May 12. Tickets are just $11 at the door.


With an appearance on the cover of Bluegrass Unlimited, with songs recorded by the likes of the Country Gentlemen, and with performances alongside bluegrass greats like Bill Monroe and Ralph Stanley, the RFD Boys are a part of America’s bluegrass tradition.

One of southeastern Michigan’s most durable musical ensembles, they’re very much a local tradition, too. If you’re new to the area, come and check ’em out – you’ll find a real slice of musical Ann Arbor, and probably make some new friends!
