LA Bluegrass Situation - 2 Day Ticket

The Theatre at Ace Hotel

Los Angeles, 90015


The Bluegrass Situation will take place over two days at Theatre at Ace Hotel in downtown LA. The fourth-ever, expanded affair has grown from its founding grounds at the legendary Largo at the Coronet Theatre in West Hollywood to the newly-opened, delicately restored movie palace originally built by Mary Pickford and Charlie Chaplin in 1927.

“The roots music scene in Los Angeles has been exploding for some time, so in 2010, Largo founder Mark Flanagan and I decided it was time for a serious Bluegrass Situation. We rounded up a few of our favorite artists and had a fabulous weekend at Largo. LA seemed to like it. A lot. So after a few more great years at Largo, we're thrilled to expand the LA Bluegrass Situation into the stunning Theatre at Ace Hotel downtown. At this rate, I predict bluegrass music will eclipse the movie industry in Los Angeles in about six months, give or take.”

In 1969, a handful of aspiring young musicians from Sucre, Bolivia formed Los Masis, the city’s first traditional Andean music group. For over four decades, they have traveled throughout Bolivia and abroad sharing their passion for traditional music, dressed in the colorful ponchos of the region’s Tarabuco indigenous people.
Bolivia Corazón de America, a dance ensemble under the artistic direction of Isidro Fajardo, was formed to teach the growing population of Bolivian children in San Francisco the dances and music of their heritage. The company's repertoire includes pre-Columbian traditions performed at both religious and secular community celebrations. The first dance, Suri Sicuri, is accompanied by the music of panpipes, the siku, wearing magnificent headdresses made of ostrich feathers, the suri. The second dance, Saya, is Afro-Bolivian in origin, highlighting Afro-Bolivian rhythms and the dynamic energy of African-based movement.
