Northwest Folklife Festival
The Weavils will be playing at the Northwest Folklife Festival on the Fisher Green Stage, from 7:45 to 8:15 pm. Please join us at one of the top music festivals in the State. Always a lot of fun, and free admission!
Leading this Seattle Bluegrass band is the entertaining MC and banjo player, Greg Lawless. The band performs a variety of genres, making them not only hard to classify, but uniquely diverse.
You will hear not only bluegrass; but Western Swing, Cajun, “Celtgrass”, Hawaiian, and even a rendition of a rock song or two.
Blended into the mix are songs written by their talented mandolin player, Chris Davidson. Chris is a wonderful vocalist, leaning toward a traditional bluegrass sound, EVEN featuring a yodel now and again.
All of these songs are tied together by the harmonious sounds of a magnificent dobro, played by Mark Meyers, who also provides sweet harmonica interludes.
The rhythm section, led by Pete Thorn (guitar) and Gray Pedersen (bass), keeps the band on the beat.
No introductions could be complete without mentioning the mellow baritone voice of David Grout, who elevates the vocal numbers to stratospheric heights.
