Comet Bluegrass All-Stars return to Music@BCM, Behringer-Crawford’s summer concert series, June 27 

For more than a decade, the Comet Bluegrass All-Stars have brought their bluegrass harmonies to the Sunday night crowd at the Northside neighborhood bar, The Comet. 

On June 27, you can hear their interpretations of American roots music on a Thursday night as part of the 2019 Music@BCM concert series at Behringer-Crawford Museum.

The Comet Bluegrass All-Stars will perform at Behringer-Crawford Museum’s Music@BCM concert series, June 27 (provided photo).

The group became the house band at The Comet in 1997 and their popularity soon spread.

They have performed at the opening ceremonies of the World Choir Games as guests of the Cincinnati Pops Orchestra and opened for national acts such as Del McCoury, Ricky Skaggs and Sam Bush.

The six-member band includes John Cole on resophonic guitar, Chris Goins on flat top guitar, Jeff Roberts on five-string banjo, Artie Werner on upright bass, Ed Cunningham on fiddle and Missy Werner on mandolin. In addition to their talented instrumental work, each member sings as well, making the whole greater than the sum of its parts.
