The St. Patrick’s Day benefit concert at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium will not include Patty Loveless, as reported here last week. As it stands now, the lineup includes Marty Stuart, Steve Earle, Emmylou Harris, Sam Bush, Tim O’Brien, Sonya Isaacs, John Hartford, his son Jamie Hartford, Kathy Chiavola, Wild & Blue, Gail Davies, Larry Cordle & Lonesome Standard Time, Mel Besher, Mike Henderson & the Bluebloods, the Cluster Pluckers and an all-star house band with Dave Pomeroy, Aubrey Haynie, Bryan Sutton, David Harvey and others. The March 17 concert will benefit a music scholarship program that honors late bluegrass musicians Roy Huskey Jr., Randy Howard and Charles Sawtelle.
