Bluegrass & Christmas

Fifteen-time Grammy Award-winner Ricky Skaggs’ career is easily among the most significant in recent country music history. If Skaggs’ burgeoning trophy case full of awards wasn’t already enough evidence of that fact, consider that legendary guitarist Chet Atkins once credited him with “single-handedly saving country music.” Skaggs’ life’s path has taken him to various musical genres, from where it all began in bluegrass music, to striking out on new musical journeys, while still leaving his musical roots intact. Following his acclaimed sold-out performance in Hodgson Concert Hall two years ago, the legendary musician returns to UGA Presents with a special program of holiday hits, bluegrass style!
