FestivaLink.net presents Black Mountain Boys at Ashkenaz Music and Dance Community Center, Berkeley, CA 3/8/13
On the occasion of the Ashkenaz' 40th anniversary, the Black Mountain Boys reunited for its 50th anniversary. Jerry Garcia's first bluegrass band was a trio with David and Eric.
Says Eric: "Our Black Mountain Boys Reunion at Ashkenaz recaptures the thrill we felt half a century ago, when traditional Bluegrass music first captured our hearts. Back in those days the persuit of this exciting music consumed all our waking hours (and our dreams as well). We're still chasing it with joy and relish!"
Who knows when this group will be together again?
David Nelson (guitar, vocals), Eric Thompson (mandolin, vocals), Paul Shelasky (fiddle), Rick Shubb (banjo), Paul Knight (bass)
Suzy Thompson (fiddle, vocals)
