Bluegrass favorite Hot Rize is embarking on its first U.S. Tour in more than a decade. The lineup will feature original members Pete Wernick on banjo, Tim O’Brien on mandolin/fiddle and Nick Forster on bass. Bryan Sutton continues his stint as the band's guitarist, after replacing the late Charles Sawtelle when the group began performing again in 2002.
