Los Olivos, CA -

A singer and multi-instrumentalist with many years' performing experience throughout California and the West, Peter Feldmann has been presenting bluegrass, folk, string band, and related musics since the early 1960's, and is known as the founder of the Santa Barbara Old Time Fiddler's Convention, and the original Bluebird Café in Santa Barbara, a music club highly influential on the Southern California Music scene. Peter is the recipient of last years "Music Legend" award from the Topanga Banjo/Fiddle Association.

Where: The Santa Ynez Valley Grange Hall, Los Olivos; When: 8PM Saturday, February 21. Tickets on Sale at the Door, $10-$12

The five-piece Very Lonesome Boys band includes bassist Tom Lee, veteran of the Cache Valley Drifters and The Bluegrass Cardinals, The banjo duties are ably handled by record producer David West (Play Ball Productions), known also for his song writing and engineering skills, while Tommy Marton, a leading exponent of Texas contest style fiddling as well as bluegrass music, will preside on fiddle. The band presents a stimulating mixture of bluegrass standards and re-visitations of earlier country music from the 1920s and 30s.

We're delighted to welcome Kenny Blackwell as guest musician on guitar and mandolin. Originally from the great state of Michigan, he studied Jazz with his musical idol, the great Jethro Burns, of Homer and Jethro fame. He is known for his work with such luminaries as Linda Ronstadt, Neil Diamond, and Johnny Rivers.

Note that there is a possibility of other guest musicians for these shows, so there should be lots of fun. We strongly recommend that you purchase tickets early, as space is limited at these venues.
