The UK Bluegrass band “The Down County Boys” was formed in 1964 and has been performing at major bluegrass festivals yearly from the very beginning! Over the years, the band has enjoyed having some of the finest UK bluegrass musicians as performing members. The current five piece line-up includes (from left to right on photo) Chris Elson Guitars/vocals. Peter Parker, fiddle/vocals. Mick Cooper upright bass/vocals. Dan Norton, mandolin/vocals. Chris Cooper, banjo/vocals. The band plays with musical drive and passion, intermixed with classic vocals and a mix of subtle humour for added entertainment!
The Down County Boys ace banjo player Chris Cooper will also give an afternoon ‘Beginning Bluegrass Banjo Workshop’.
We’re looking forward to another great day of world class music!
Steve and all the Eagle Music Team.
