Since its inception in 1971, the Seldom Scene has thrived on playing bluegrass a little differently than everyone else. If other bands used a fiddler, the Seldom Scene used a Dobro; if others relied on old standards, the Seldom Scene played rock classics. Through skilled musicianship and an urban approach to bluegrass, the Seldom Scene has become one of the most influential bluegrass band of the last 30 years. An alumnus of Jimmy Martin and J.D. Crowe's great '60s bluegrass bands, as well as the early-'70s lineup of The Country Gentlemen, Doyle Lawson set out on his own in the late '70s, carving out a specific niche as a bluegrass gospel performer. Quicksilver has had several great lineups, each of which combines flawless musicianship with a sweet, countrified take on "southern gospel" quartet vocals.
