Cumberland Crossing

Friday - February, 08 @ 6:00pm

Cumberland Crossing, the hosts of  Blue's monthly BLUEGRASS JAM every second Thursday* of the month, will be performing a special full Friday set of classic and contemporary Bluegrass.

Erica Kingston (bass)
Bill Holden (dobro, vocals)
Ronnie Gallant (guitar, vocals)
Taylor Smith (mandolin, vocals)
Most of Cumberland Crossing met informally at the weekly bluegrass jam at the 317 Main Street Music Center in Yarmouth, Maine (this place should be on the short list of Great Protectors of Acoustic Music in America). After one pickup gig in October of 2007, we decided to get together more regularly. Ronnie G, whom most of us already knew - was asked to join in and Ronnie said yes. Been together since then.
*no bluegrass jam next thursday; join us instead for a romantic Valentines Day line-up 5pm-11pm
