He had his first professional performance in France at the age of sixteen. While attending the Cambridge School of Weston in Weston, Massachusetts, Jospé enrolled in the Berklee College of Music summer session and began formal training on drums.

The Country Gentlemen Tribute Band

Bill Yates Pic 2 Performances“It is with a saddened heart that we, the Country Gentlemen Tribute Band, announce the passing of another bluegrass legend, our friend and mentor Bill Yates.  We in the band not only knew him as a mentor, but as a friend and a father figure, and we truly did enjoy our times with him on the road and on the stage.  He passed at the Winchester Medical Center in Winchester, VA with family present. We in the band send our deepest condolences to the Yates family and pray God will bless them and be with them through this most difficult time.” – Post from the Country Gentleman Tribute Band website

“Due to Bill’s continuing activity and popularity in the Bluegrass genre, he has most recently been deemed as “The Ambassador of Bluegrass” by not only his friends and adoring fans, but by his peers as well. The current Bill Yates & The Country Gentlemen Tribute Band lineup that performs on stage today includes: Bill Yates on vocals, Mike Phipps on the “Charlie Waller” sound-alike vocals, David Propst on mandolin and vocals, Rick Briggs on banjo and vocals, Larry Kirk on upright bass and vocals, and Mark Clifton on the resophonic guitar (dobro) and vocals. This ensemble puts their heart and soul into each performance and tries to satisfy that musical hunger for the multitude of Country Gentlemen fans around the country; especially those that truly miss Charlie Waller’s magical voice, and do their best to recreate, as close as possible, the way the songs were originally performed and sung.”

Blue Highway

Blue Highway Pic 1024x682 Performances

At the 20-year mark, Blue Highway is indisputably one of the most esteemed and influential groups in contemporary bluegrass. The band’s eleven exceptional albums and compelling live performances give proof to the stellar reviews, Grammy nominations, and numerous awards earned by the band since it first took the stage on December 31, 1994. That first performance featured the same musicians that comprise Blue Highway today, making their 20th anniversary all the more remarkable..

With a deep bench of virtuosic songwriters, vocalists and instrumentalists, Blue Highway’s hallmark is an unwavering commitment to the ensemble, the “democracy of the band” that makes Blue Highway a powerhouse.

Individually, Jason Burleson (banjo, guitar, mandolin), Rob Ickes (Dobro), Shawn Lane (mandolin, fiddle, vocals), Tim Stafford (guitar, vocals), and Wayne Taylor (bass, vocals) are masters of their respective roles. Together, in Stafford’s words, they are “a democracy in the best sense of the word”: five gifted artists selflessly merging their talents into a seamlessly brilliant group sound. As a result, the band moves from strength to strength, more mature and impressive with each new album.

With eleven highly-acclaimed albums to its credit, Blue Highway has garnered two Grammy nominations, a Dove Award, topped the Bluegrass Unlimited radio charts, and won numerous International Bluegrass Music Association awards. Refusing to coast on past glories, Blue Highway continues to push its music to new levels of accomplishment. Artfully balanced between tradition and innovation, it remains in the forefront of contemporary bluegrass music.

The Duhks

the duhks Performances

No band epitomizes the polyethnic strands of modern folk music better than The Duhks. Since forming in Winnipeg in 2001, The Duhks have created a dynamic blend of old-timey, French Canadian and Celtic music punched up with shades of blues, soul and driving Afro-Cuban rhythms that leaves festival crowds on their feet. Over the course of four critically-acclaimed albums the band has earned Juno and Grammy awards and nominations and have played a significant role in the neo-folk revival.

On Beyond the Blue The Duhks are in the best form of their 13 year career. Rejuvenated by a two year hiatus and energized by the return of vocalist Jessee Havey and the addition of new members, fiddler Rosie Newton, drummer/percussionist Kevin Garcia, and guitarist/bouzouki player Colin Savoie-Levac, The Duhks founder Leonard Podolak found an amazing pallet of inspiration for the new project. “All of the people who have been in the band over the years, including non-touring founding members Tania Elizabeth and Jordan McConnell (who both appear on the album) have had a hand in shaping our sound and direction. The goal with the new record was to draw on everything we’ve learned over the years and everything we know about where we want to take the music now and create something as fresh, exciting and forward thinking as possible.” Toward that end, the band turned to the rising production team of Mike + Ruthy (Mike Merenda and Ruth Unger of The Mammals), who brought a progressive approach to production that was still firmly rooted in the traditions of folk music.
