10/18/19 – The Cache Valley Drifters

The Painted Sky Concert Series presents An Double bill of outstanding Americana music with California Bluegrass Legends The Cache Valley Drifters along with Crary, Evans and Barnick in intimate acoustic Concert Friday October 18th, at 7:30pm

What began back in 1972 as a bunch of California hippy kids playing music for the fun of it, the Cache Valley Drifters have been bringing a modern outlook to bluegrass and country music for over three-and-a-half decades. Although they disbanded from 1985 to 1993, a period the band describes as “eight years off for good behavior”, the Cache Valley Drifters (pronounced “cash”) have been steadily making up for lost time. Their performances are as likely to include bluegrass interpretations of songs by Paul Simon, Etta James and Cream as they are to feature tunes by the late country folk-singer Kate Wolf and traditional fiddle music. They have shared concert and festival stages with artists such as Doc and Merle Watson, Newgrass Revival, Stephane Grappelli, David Grisman, Alison Krauss, etc…. but also with artists you most likely wouldn’t expect: The Allman Brothers, Dave Mason, Little Feat, Willie Nelson, Ricky Nelson, Emmylou Harris, etc. The Group features BILL GRIFFIN: mandolin, guitar & vocals / WALLY BARNICK: electric bass & vocals & MIKE MULLINS: guitar, mandolin & vocals. Building a reputation early on for their rich vocal harmonies and virtuoso musicianship,
A Crary, Evans & Barnick show includes new songs and old stories, blazing instrumental artistry, and deep-down, powerfully-felt musical moments. It’s whistling winds in the pines, rambling boys and tragic girls, joys and laughter from old times, furious and foot-tapping instrumental tunes, and a little touch of glory-to-God. And it’s the hovering ghosts of Jimmie Rogers and The Carter Family and Bill and Lester and Earl and Woody and all the greats who showed the way.
