Old fashioned advertising circulars would say: "Back by popular demand . . . Peter Feldmann & The Very Lonesome Boys!". Early Sci-Fi film posters would claim: "Keep Watching The Skies - The Return Of The Very Lonesome Boys!" Well, it's true, they're coming back to the S.Y. Valley Grange Hall in Los Olivos, CA with lots more bluegrass music.
The program, which begins at 8:00 PM, will feature bluegrass standards, songs of the West, and a number of 1920s-30s country songs adapted to the bluegrass format. Advance tickets, priced at $12.00, are available on-line at BlueGrassWest.com and at Jensen's Music, Solvang. If available, tickets will be sold at the door for $15.00 beginning at 7:30 PM.
A singer and multi-instrumentalist with many years' performing experience throughout California and the West, Peter has been presenting bluegrass, folk, string band, and related musics since the early 1960's, and is known as the founder of the Santa Barbara Old Time Fiddler's Convention, and the original Bluebird Café in Santa Barbara, a music club highly influential on the Southern California Music scene. Peter's tribute CD to Uncle Dave Macon, "Grey Cat On The Tennessee Farm", was named to the nation's Top Ten Bluegrass albums of 2005 by the Chicago Tribune.
The five-piece Very Lonesome Boys band includes bassist Tom Lee, veteran of the Cache Valley Drifters and The Bluegrass Cardinals, Mike Nadolson, head of Tricopolis Records in Orange County plays Martin flat-top guitar. The banjo duties are ably handled by record producer David West (Play Ball Productions), known also for his song writing and engineering skills, while Tommy Marton, a leading exponent of Texas contest style fiddling as well as bluegrass music, will preside on fiddle. Together now for ten years, the band has performed throughout Southern and Central California at festivals, clubs, and college concerts. They've entertained the Rancheros Visitadores, worked at fund raisers, survived an audience of more than six thousand masked Halloween revelers, and even an alien UFO abduction (see our release and news notice dated 5/19/06 in the press section of Bluegrasswest.com).
