Ann Arbor's own RFD Boys last had a real retrospective at The Ark's 40th-anniversary Folk Festival, and on that occasion it was brought home to everyone there how deeply this group of musicians has been woven into the musical life of Ann Arbor. Now they've celebrated their own 50th anniversary (with a new album, "Still Delivering," no less!), and it's time for another special show. It's hard to believe, because each show is fresh and new, but the RFD Boys have been delighting Michigan audiences since 1969 with their fabulous musicianship and sly, exquisitely timed between-song humor. They're legends of Michigan bluegrass, but they're more than that too. With an appearance on the cover of Bluegrass Unlimited, with songs recorded by the likes of the Country Gentlemen, and with performances alongside bluegrass greats like Bill Monroe and Ralph Stanley, the RFD Boys are a part of America's bluegrass tradition.
