Clover Point Drifters @Charslanding
Fri, Apr 6th, 8-10pm, Bluegrass Concert Clover Point Drifters
A 3-show tour of Vancouver Island, with shows at Port Alberni, Cortes Island and Sayward. Three shows is not exactly an ambitious tour, but having been playing together for over 18 years, the boys are focused on quality rather than quantity. Small venues are where their single-microphone show is best delivered, up close with fans that appreciate the fineries of the acoustic bluegrass musical form.
Mike Kraft (banjo, harmony vocals) is one of Canada's finest banjo players. He shares with us his humour and stock picks.
Larry Stevens (resophonic guitar, lead vocals) has a gift for singing the country song, good times and bad, love and loss, the past and even further past. George Robinson (bass, lead vocals) has the longest pedigree in the band, having played bluegrass bass since 1977. Dan Parker (mandolin, lead vocals) he also builds guitars. Dans spirited and inventive solos complement the plodding efficacy of the old farts. Alan Law (guitar, lead & harmony vocals) In a band of baritones, he enjoys the role of tenor singer, and he loves singing harmony more than almost anything you can imagine.
