Tony Trischka to Perform at the Wellsville Creative Arts Center Friday November 4th

WELLSVILLE,NY-The Early Roman Kings, featuring Tony Trischka, will be performing the music of Bob Dylan on Friday, November 4th, at the Wellsville Creative Arts Center.  Show starts at 8pm.  Advanced tickets are $22, $24 at door.  Members save an additional $2.  Tickets may be purchased online at or at the Art Center Coffee House.  For more information visit the website or call (585) 593-3000.

To commemorate Bob Dylan’s 75th birthday, Grammy-nominated banjo legend Tony Trischka has put together a band with his son Sean on drums, Stash Wyslouch (guitar/vocals) and Jared Engel (bass).  This special show will feature over half a century of Dylan tunes — some hidden gems as well as the mother lode hits.

In a consistently adventurous musical career that spans nearly half a century, Tony Trischka has established himself as both a wildly inventive recording artist and one of America's foremost visionaries of the five-string banjo. Widely regarded as the most innovative banjoist of his generation, Trischka's dexterity and restless creative spirit have inspired generations of fans, and his influence in igniting the world of progressive acoustic music permanently altered the face of American roots music.

Trischka has recorded 17 solo albums in addition to another 17 group albums, and has appeared on countless recordings by other artists. He has collaborated with banjoists Bela Fleck, Steve Martin, Earl Scruggs, Pete Seeger, Alison Brown and Noam Pikelny, among others, and has worked with as diverse a group as Tony Rice, David Grisman, Mike Seeger, Charles Osgood, John Goodman, Larry Campbell, Michael Daves, John Denver, William S. Burroughs and the Korean Symphony. 

Tony continues to maintain a national and international touring schedule. For these “Early Roman Kings: The Music of Bob Dylan” shows, he is thrilled to play some tunes by a musical hero he met over 50 years ago, in honor of the artist’s 75th birthday.  He’s equally thrilled to be enjoying this experience with Sean Trischka, Stash Wyslouch, and Jared Engel, brilliant musicians and fun guys!
