WE ARE PLEASED TO ANNOUNCE THAT OUR NEW CD, TANGLED ROOTS, IS NOW AVAILABLE!!!
This CD features a diverse selection of new material, with traditional three-part harmonies on straight-forward bluegrass songs, gospel tunes, modern instrumentals, and a single original!
AND WE'RE SHOWCASING AT THE FATHER'S DAY BLUEGRASS FESTIVAL IN GRASS VALLEY!
We are also extremely honored to be a California Showcase Band this year at the Father's Day Bluegrass Festival in Grass Valley! We'll be performing Saturday morning and Sunday afternoon (see left upcoming shows for details). This year's lineup includes names like Blue Highway, Red Dog Ash, Rhonda Vincent, Front Country, and yours truly! We hope to see you there!
WHO WE ARE AND WHAT WE DO
We are a family bluegrass band -- the Schwartz family from Walnut Creek, California, featuring the nimble picking of brothers Nate and Max on mandolin and banjo, and their sizzling little sister, Tessa, on fiddle. Parents Bob and Gail provide solid rhythm on guitar and bass. We like a lot of different bluegrass styles -- from the traditional songs of Bill Monroe and the Stanley Brothers to the more progressive styles that Nate and Max are drawn to. We all like to sing, and you're likely to hear several different vocal combinations during one of our performances. We usually play at farmers markets, concert venues and various private events in the East Bay, but during the summer we like to play at California State Parks, and we have played for audiences in Santa Cruz, Marin, and in the redwood forests of Humboldt County. With three kids growing up (and improving) so fast, our sound changes every season, so come on out and catch us (or hire us!) when you can -- we try hard to entertain and we hope you'll be mighty pleased with what you hear.
Our first CD is still available as well!
