Alan Bibey is one of the great mandolin pickers of his generation. He's worth the price of admission by himself, having pioneered a style that has influenced many younger mandolinists and is named after him. Grasstowne has been through several recent changes, but Justin Jenkins and Kameron Keller have remained, both young guns who ably complement Bibey. Meanwhile, they search for a reliable lead singer/guitarist to replace Blake Johnson, who has moved on. Appearing on both Friday and Saturday, they'll provide plenty of first rate bluegrass.
Highway 41 South has become one of Florida's most frequently heard and seen bands. It presents solid traditional bluegrass without excessive fanfare. Robert Feather's singing has made a substantial addition to the band's repertoire. Seriously, though, Donnie Harvey makes a terrficic contribution as an under recognized banjo player. It's a good band.
Promoter Keith Bass has assembled a reliable and hard working band that delivers fine 1st and 2nd generation tunes. I'm particularly struck by their work with Country Gentlemen covers. Shane Stewart is a hard working singer/rhythm guitarist, while Clint Dockery is a versatile multi-instrumentalist. Jason Baker on fiddle is both capable and amusing. He has extensive experience out of Florida.
