Loafers' Glory with Keystone Crossing opening
Loafers' Glory features some of the finest musicians not only in the state, but in the entire country. Four fabulous pickers and singers perform a seamless and compelling blend of traditional bluegrass and-old time music. Three of the band members have each been playing acoustic music for more than 40 years, and the fourth is one as the hottest young banjo players on the scene.
Herb Pedersen, who played banjo in bands such as The Dillards, The Country Gazette, Old & In The Gray, Here Today, The Laurel Canyon Ramblers, and Vern & Ray, plays mostly guitar here. He also played with The Foggy Mountain Boys for a time, subbing for Earl Scruggs back in the late '60s.
Bill Bryson, bass, is also an accomplished old-time banjo player as well as an amazing singer/songwriter. Some of the bands that he has played with are The Bluegrass Cardinals, Desert Rose, and The Laurel Canyon Ramblers.
Tom Sauber has been in the forefront of the traditional old-time music scene for a few decades now. An accomplished fiddle and five-string banjo player, he has appeared on countless recording projects and movie sound tracks.
Patrick Sauber, Tom's son, comes from the same musical background as his dad. He's an astounding multi-instrumentalist who feels as much at home on the five-string as he does on the mandolin and guitar.
Opening the show will be the local twosome Keystone Crossing - Larry Carlin and Claudia Hampe. Their angelic harmonies hearken back to the early days of country and bluegrass music, as they sing songs of the famous brother duos of that era - The Delmore, Louvin, and Everly Brothers - as well as songs from contemporary duos such as Gillian Welch & David Rawlings, and Chris Hillman & Herb Pedersen.
