Palatka to host strong bluegrass lineup

The next stop on Ted Lehmann's Southeastern bluegrass itinerary is The Palatka Bluegrass Festival, February 7-9 at Rodeheaver Boys' Ranch in Palatka FL near Gainesville. The festival boasts a top-notch lineup with Ralph Stanley, Rhonda Vincent, Doyle Lawson, The Grascals, Blue Highway, Steep Canyon Rangers and lots more.

In this excerpt, Ted anticipates performance by several of the acts:

One of the highlights of the weekend will be Country Current, the U.S. Navy’s touring bluegrass band. Because this band is on active duty in the Navy, they are precluded from making commercial recordings. This means that much of their very high quality repertoire is not as well known as it should be. Lead singer Wayne Taylor is exceptional. Frank Sollivan II is one of the finest mandolin players in the business. Keith Arneson’s work on banjo is elegant and thoughtful and his direction of the band light. This band is not to be missed.

Rhonda Vincent, one of the most reliable, hardest touring, and highest quality performers in bluegrass music. One of her great qualities is the amount off-stage time she gives the rabid fans and new converts who flock to her merchandise table. While she is a known quantity, she never disappoints. I’m eager to hear what Darrell Webb, who has replaced Josh Williams at guitar will add to the mix. He was excellent with Wildfire, and he will surely change the mix as well as continue the excellence.
