Los Olivos, CA -

On Saturday, November 21, The Grange Hall welcomes Peter Feldmann and the Very Lonesome Boys. They will be performing a wide variety of music, primarily in "traditional" bluegrass style and heavily influenced by old time Appalachian string music.

Their repertoire ranges from Elizabethan-era ballads to Appalachian songs and breakdowns; from country blues to modern bluegrass and beyond. The band plays straight, unadulterated bluegrass, including high energy instrumentals and heartfelt singing.

The five-piece Very Lonesome Boys band includes bassist Tom Lee, veteran of the Cache Valley Drifters and The Bluegrass Cardinals, Mike Nadolson, head of Tricopolis Records in Orange County plays Martin flat-top guitar. The banjo duties are ably handled by multi-instrumentalist David West (Play Ball Productions), and Tommy Marton, a leading exponent of Texas contest style fiddling as well as bluegrass music, will preside on fiddle.

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 in the Southern California Music scene. Last year, Peter was awarded the "2008 Music Legend Award" by the Topanga Banjo/Fiddle Association of Los Angeles.

Doors will open at the Los Olivos Grange Hall Saturday, 21st November at 7:30pm.
