Tony Trischka and his band perform as the Early Roman Kings in this tribute to the music of Bob Dylan, from the very beginning to the present, with a whole lot in between. As Jimmy Carter said at the 2015 Music Cares Grammy event, where Dylan received the Person of the Year Award: “There’s no doubt his words on peace and human rights are much more incisive and much more powerful and much more permanent than those of any President of the United States.” That side of his mercurial career and many others will be mined for hidden gems as well as the mother lode hits.

Early Roman Kings are: Tony Trischka/banjo, pedal steel; Stash Wyslouch/guitar, vocals; Sean Trischka/drums, vocals; and Jared Engel/bass.

Trischka is considered to be one of the most influential banjo players in the roots music world. A 2012 United States Artists Friends Fellow, Trischka has, for more than 45 years, inspired generations of bluegrass and acoustic musicians with the many innovative and historical voices he has brought to the instrument.

A native of Syracuse, NY, Trischka's interest in the five-string banjo was sparked by the Kingston Trio's "Charlie and the MTA" in 1963, the very same year, as a young teen, he was introduced to Bob Dylan – literally and figuratively. Trischka’s banjo teacher brought him to a Dylan show in Syracuse, and he has remained a huge fan ever since.

A multiple Grammy nominee, Trischka has recorded 17 solo albums in addition to another 17 group albums, and has appeared on countless recordings by other artists. He has collaborated with banjoists Bela Fleck, Steve Martin, Earl Scruggs, Pete Seeger, Alison Brown and Noam Pikelny, among others, and has worked with as diverse a group as Tony Rice, David Grisman, Mike Seeger, Charles Osgood, John Goodman, Larry Campbell, Michael Daves, John Denver, William S. Burroughs and the Korean Symphony.
