Not many musicians can lay claim to being the ‘father’ of an entire genre of music. Sam Bush can. Sam is a pioneer and a living legend. In Revival: The Sam Bush Story, audiences will experience the power of Sam’s musical journey. Widely considered the ‘Father of Newgrass’, Sam has become the icon of his own genre. From jam bands to Chris Thile, from the Avett Brothers to Zac Brown, many of today’s biggest acts in Bluegrass, Newgrass, and Americana owe a debt of gratitude to Sam. But where does he fit in the new world of acoustic music? While he’s inspired some of the world’s most famous bands and accomplished musicians, for millions of potential fans, the “Father of Newgrass” remains an unknown legend. “Too old to be young and too young to be an old legend,” is how Sam describes himself. While musicians he inspired reach levels of success and stardom Sam never did, his challenge is to remain relevant: one show at a time.

Orion: The Man Who Would Be King tells the story of Jimmy Ellis – an unknown singer plucked from obscurity and thrust into the spotlight as part of a crazy scheme that had him masquerade as Elvis back from the grave. With an outlandish fictional identity torn from the pages of the novel Orion by Gail Brewer Giorgio, the backing of the legendary birthplace of rock ‘n’ roll Sun Records and a voice that seemed to be the very twin of Presley’s himself, the scheme – concocted in the months after Presley’s death exploded into a cult success – and the “Elvis is alive” myth began. Orion proves that fact is indeed ‘stranger than fiction’. Who was that masked man?
