The Cadleys
The Cadleys
THE CADLEYS are one of the most skilled and entertaining acoustic bands in the Northeast. John and Cathy’s duet singing follows in the tradition of great male-female pairings like Ian and Sylvia, George Jones and Tammy Wynette, Dolly Parton and Porter Wagoner, and Gram Parsons and Emmy Lou Harris, as well as the great male duets such as The Louvin Brothers. Their live performances feature traditional bluegrass classics from The Stanley Brothers and Bill Monroe…”new acoustic” songs from contemporary artists like Alison Krauss and Gillian Welch…and most of all, John’s original songs which have been recorded by a number of national bluegrass artists, including Tony Trischka, Jim Hurst, Missy Raines, The International Guitar Duo, Richard Kiser, Amy Gallatin, and Lou Reid, who, with Vince Gill and Ricky Skaggs singing harmony, took John’s song “Time” to the #1 spot on the national bluegrass charts.

Virtually every member of the band has won numerous SAMMY’s (Syracuse Area Music Awards), and bassist John Dancks recently took that distinction even further with his induction into the SAMMY Hall of Fame. Rounding out the band is Perry Cleaveland, one of the most in-demand mandolin players in Upstate New York. Perry’s virtuoso playing has been featured in just about every prominent acoustic act in the area, recorded and live, bluegrass and otherwise.

With so many years of experience among them, The Cadleys know how to engage an audience with a rare combination of great original and traditional songs, stunning two- and three-part harmonies, solid musicianship, and the occasional bad joke. Find out more at www.cadleys.com.

Whippoorwillow
Whippoorwillow plays original music, bluegrass staples, and songs from a variety of genres in the bluegrass style.

In the valley town of Brooktondale, New York, Rita and Matt crossed paths and found a common interest in playing sweet, sweet tunes together. After a few years of playing as a duo and conjecturing about adding other instruments, Andy Knapp rolled in to town with his mandolin and deep voice, turning Me & Matt in to a trio. Through a series of small miracles and small-town connections, Audrey Moss came on board to ground the sound with her upright bass.
