Ricky Skaggs and Sawyer Brown Take Center Stage at Shipshewana’s Blue Gate Theater

Two legendary music headliners bring their acts to The Blue Gate Theater in Shipshewana May 4 and 5. Fourteen-time Grammy winner Ricky Skaggs, and 6-time Country Group of the Year Sawyer Brown will light up the Shipshewana stage. Fourteen-time Grammy winner Ricky Skaggs opens this blockbuster weekend lineup with a 6 p.m. show on Friday, May 4. On Saturday, the high-energy band Sawyer Brown will light up the Shipshewana theater with its crowd-pleasing show, also beginning at 6 p.m. At 21, the Kentucky-born Skaggs was already considered a master musician, and he continues to do his part to lead the recent roots revival in music. The diverse and masterful tones made by the gifted Skaggs come from a life dedicated to playing music that is both fed by the soul and felt by the heart. Skaggs received his first mandolin at the age of five. By age seven, Skaggs had made his Grand Ole Opry debut and performed with bluegrass legends Flatt & Scruggs on their popular syndicated television show, for which he earned his first paycheck for a musical performance.
