Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Bluegrass Band is a modern bluegrass band that plays and sings the songs of The Beatles. Just as the Beatles broke the mold of all things rock and roll, Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Bluegrass Band follows closely with that same spirit of innovation, interpreting songs already loved by millions. Performing some of the very best music composed by Paul McCartney, John Lennon and George Harrison, beloved songs are presented with instruments you normally wouldn’t expect to hear and played in a way they are not normally played. The result is a pleasing sound with a lot of fun surprises along the way. Learn More
