Prepare for some serious bluegrass to blow the doors off the Cashmere Community Concerts, Saturday, October 19th at 7:30pm with the Pacific Northwest’s (PNW) most exciting and accomplished bluegrass band, the DownTown Mountain Boys. These bluegrass veterans and recording artists of the PNW music scene are wizards when it comes to picking with a firepower that will scorch your bluegrass ears! “Their repertoire spans the best loved standards to their own high powered originals”, with their original material rooted deep in the traditions of the bluegrass genre. The band members are highly regarded as top teachers, session musicians and musicologists, or in other words, the cream of the bluegrass crop. They have been seen for years with such popular Northwest bands as Ranch Romance, Rural Delivery, Rainy Pass, and Who’s Driving?, along with many others throughout the years. This will be an evening of serious chops wrapped in bluegrass fun all the way.
Paul Elliott on fiddle is smooth and powerful. Paul is a much-in-demand session fiddler and showcases his talents in several Northwest area bands.
Terrence Enyeart, a mainstay of traditional bluegrass in his home area is an accomplished bass and mandolin player, plus he is a great lead singer and songwriter. His background includes stints in “Rural Delivery” and “Brother’s Keeper.”
David Keenan, is a powerhouse picker on banjo, mandolin, guitar and other instruments, and is also a singer and songwriter. A professional entertainer with numerous bands over the years, David brings a great sense of humor to the band and his on-stage work is entertaining and fun.
Don Share on guitar is a class act all the way. His guitar pickin’ is “clean and decent” as is his vocal work.
Tom Moran on mandolin is strong and steady, a total complement to the sound of the band.
