• Mandolin Cafe and Rick Frydman Present Hot Rize in Concert

    Lawrence, Kans. — Perennial favorite Hot Rize returns to Liberty Hall on October 15, 8:00 p.m. when the Mandolin Cafe and Rick Frydman present the legendary bluegrass ensemble in concert with special guest Red Knuckles and the Trailblazers.

    Touring in support of When I'm Free, their first studio recording in 25 years, Hot Rize received four nominations this month from the International Bluegrass Music Association for Album of the Year (When I'm Free), Entertainer of the Year (Hot Rize), Male Vocalist (Tim O'Brien) and Guitar (Bryan Sutton).

    Winners in these categories and others will be revealed at the International Bluegrass Music Awards on Thursday, October 1, in Raleigh, North Carolina.

    Tickets are available for purchase directly from Liberty Hall (in person, cash only) or through TicketMaster.

    Liberty Hall is a locally owned and operated historic theater in downtown Lawrence that provides an intimate setting with a state of the art sound system. Voted the city's Best Music Venue three years straight, the building has acted as a community-meeting house since 1856.

      there is a discrepancy regarding the dates of the concert. The Mandolin Cafe Homepage states "November 15" and the article states "October 15".

      Which date is the correct one?

      It's October 15. Typo on the home page that has been corrected.
