The HVBA has been participating in this annual event since 2011. This year we will begin with an open jam at 12:30 followed by four outstanding bands. Each week we will spotlight one of the participating bands in this newsletter.
If you take Traditional Bluegrass, Western Swing, and Old Time Fiddle then you pretty much have the styles of music that influence the Angell Bandd sound. They take the individual soloing from Bluegrass, the tight rhythm from Old Time Fiddling, and from Western Swing … well, that’s what lightens it up and puts a smile on their faces.
Composed of local musicians from Stone Ridge to Croton they met at bluegrass sessions in Poughkeepsie through the Hudson Valley Bluegrass Association.
The band members are Terry Ghee on fiddle, Paul Rieder on dobro/harmony/vocal, Jacques DeCroce on guitar, Ed Schaffer on mandolin/harmony/vocal, Lynn Lipton on Bass, and David Angell vocals.
Hudson Crossing, New Breaks, & Bash Bish Bluegrass Band will also be playing on September 29.
