The Bow Ties

The Carson Valley Arts Council announced an evening with The Bow Ties. The band will perform 7 p.m. Nov. 10 at the CVIC Hall, 1602 Esmeralda in Minden.

“The Bow Ties are a group of voracious bluegrass pickers who have dedicated themselves to the precision playing of the masters’ classics,” according to their bio. “With their passion for the genre, they bring the heartwarming sounds of traditional bluegrass to audiences far and wide.”

This band is led by Northern California Bluegrass Association’s five-time Guitarist of the Year, Yoseff Tucker.

Alongside him, Billy Moore, a self-taught banjo picker, showcases both impressive accuracy and a deep understanding of improvisation.

“Enter the enchanting world of bluegrass as classically trained Jack Kinney takes you on a fiddling journey that can either break your heart or leave you dancing on air - sometimes both,” according to the band’s website. “The beating heart of this musical ensemble lies in the fierce rhythm provided by the duo of Zach Sharpe on upright bass and Michael Carroll on snare. Together, their seamless collaboration with the rest of the band creates a refreshing, exciting, and meticulous bluegrass experience that will stay with you long after the music stops.”

Tickets are $22 members, $24 general audience, and kids under 18 are free with a paid adult ticket. Tickets are available at the Copeland Cultural Arts Center, 1572 US Hwy 395, Minden, online at, and by phone at 775-782-8207. Tickets will also be available at the door for $28 if not sold out.
