There is no better way to kick off Friday’s Main Stage festivities, than with these four talented young musicians who make up Crying Uncle Bluegrass Band, each packing an instrumental skill impressive at any age. Brothers Miles and Teo Quale, National and State Champion fiddlers and pickers, are joined by award-winning bassist Andrew Osborn and former CBA Youth Ambassador guitarist John Gooding. Grown from the CBA youth music culture, these Northern California based players have already worked very hard, in a short amount of time, to become a musical force to be reckoned with. Winners of the 2018 Pickin’ in the Pines Band Contest in Flagstaff AZ, and selected by the International Bluegrass Music Association to perform at IBMA’s 2018 World of Bluegrass in North Carolina, Crying Uncle Bluegrass Band is making waves in the bluegrass community. We’re so happy that their efforts have brought them to the Strawberry stage and are looking forward to enjoying their performance alongside some of the nicest people you’ll ever meet. We hope to see you there!
