What does it take for a bluegrass band to remain popular for more than four decades? For the Seldom Scene, it’s taken not only talented musicians, and a signature sound, but also a sheer sense of fun. The Seldom Scene got its start right here in Bethesda, Maryland and has been instrumental in starting the progressive bluegrass movement, performing at the White House and representing bluegrass music at the National Folk Festival.
