Flatt Lonesome has been topping the bluegrass music charts since releasing its first album in 2012. The group performs at Rose-Hulman’s Hatfield Hall on Friday, Nov. 9, at 7:30 p.m.

Rose-Hulman’s Hatfield Hall will have a real Tennessee mountain feel when bluegrass sensation Flatt Lonesome takes the stage November 9.

With hits such as “You’re the One,” “All My Life,” and “Highway of Pain,” Flatt Lonesome has been topping the bluegrass charts and thrilling fans across the country since forming just seven years ago.

“We love the traditional stuff, but we try to put our own spin on the music we do,” says Charli Robertson, who plays the fiddle and sings the lead on some of the group’s most popular hits.

Charli, her brother Buddy and sister Kelsi grew up performing in churches alongside their parents in small-town Florida before striking out on their own in 2011. They soon teamed up with three close friends and branded themselves Flatt Lonesome. The band made a splash almost immediately, earning first place in a national bluegrass band challenge in 2012 and releasing a top-five album just two years later.

Flatt Lonesome combines a youthful spirit and virtuoso musical talent with a healthy respect for America’s bluegrass tradition. The group’s name pays tribute to bluegrass legends Lester Flatt and Earl Scruggs, Charli says. Much of Flatt Lonesome’s music also reflects the group’s deep gospel roots.

Flatt Lonesome has performed at the Grand Ole Opry nearly 30 times, was crowned the 2014 Emerging Artist of the Year at the International Bluegrass Music Association awards, and has scored several top-five bluegrass hits. The group’s latest album, “Silence in These Walls,” reached No. 3 on the Billboard magazine bluegrass charts last year.
