The Atkinson Family Bluegrass Band sound is one of tight three-part family harmonies from guitarists Liza and Shelene Atkinson and banjo linchpin Dick Atkinson; with the driving rhythm interplay of mandolinist Adam Atkinson and dog house double bass player Jimmy Rooney of Cape Vincent.
Cincinnati Creek hails from the Adirondack foothills. Their music reflects a mix of bluegrass, original compositions, and gospel. Lori Thompson plays mandolin, guitar and sings both lead and harmony vocals. Chris Pepe plays the banjo. His fancy picking and good humor are a great addition to the band. Gary Dygert plays the guitar and dobro. He also sings lead and harmony vocals. Cathy Martin rounds out the band, playing the upright bass and singing harmony.
The Delaney Brothers
Founded in 1981, two-time SAMMY (Syracuse Area Music Award) winners Delaney Brothers Bluegrass is one of central NY's oldest and best-loved bluegrass bands. However, their music is more than just bluegrass - it's influenced by many other acoustic traditions such as country, folk, gospel, and celtic.
From the Syracuse area comes an experienced group of musicians. Diamond Someday specializes in close three part female harmony backed by solid instruments. The group brings a spirited approach to a blend of traditional, original, and gospel music. You will enjoy their heartfelt, exciting, brand of Bluegrass
James Reams & The Barnstormers
Some of the finest bluegrass and old-time country music one can find north of conventional bluegrass borders
John Cadley & The Lost Boys
Bluegrass standards and originals from standout Central New York group
John Rossbach has a powerful and compelling voice that evokes the many moods and magic of traditional American roots music. An award-winning multi-instrumentalist, he can lift you with the lilt of an old time mandolin melody, rivet you with a lowdown slide-guitar blues and fire you up with a driving banjo breakdown! John's egregious puns and outrageous tall tales thrill audiences of all ages.
Zink & Co.
Welcome to a little picture of The Lindsey Family! We are a family band featuring Dad, Mom and an ever-changing arrangement of eleven siblings! Traveling and playing music throughout the United States and Canada, we sing and play primarily gospel-oriented music, mostly in the acoustic tradition, with other instruments and styles as appropriate. Our repertoire also includes some traditional bluegrass selections and some songs, well...just for fun! Our primary criterion is that our music must be morally pure and uplifting to the hearers.
