In celebration of bluegrass American roots music, the Sidney and Berne Davis Art Center presents the David Mayfield Parade on Friday, May 21 at 7:30 p.m.
Grammy & Emmy nominated producer David Mayfield on guitar, mandolin and vocals joins two-time National Bluegrass Banjo Champion Steven Moore, and former member of The Railsplitters, Christine King on fiddle and vocals, multi-instrumentalist Andrew Bonnis on bass and vocals and former member of Cadillac Sky. Together, they parade into town for a light-hearted, fun-filled night of harmony, hot licks and laughs the whole family can enjoy.
David Mayfield grew up playing bass and touring with his family’s bluegrass band. As a teenager he established himself as a hot picker collecting national awards for his dexterity on guitar and mandolin. His knack for colorful performances was evident as a backing player in his sister Jessica Lea Mayfield’s band including their appearance on “The Late Show with David Letterman.” He oozes personality on stage – a trait that makes him a natural frontman.
He took his skills and personality when he joined the bluegrass outfit Cadillac Sky, playing sold out shows with British folk revivalists Mumford and Sons. Around then Mayfield began writing songs after hearing artists like Randy Newman and Simon & Garfunkel.
Doors open at 6:30 p.m., and the show starts at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $30 in advance and $35 at the door.
