The Dalton Mountain Gang plays their own brand of bluegrass infused with a touch of old-time music that is inspired not only by the founding fathers, but by some of the best modern performers and local musicians, as well. The goal of the group is to move the audience with the driving rhythms, powerful vocals, and to have a good time doing it! Standards are layered with new original songs that retain the authentic feel of today's bluegrass. One of the group's trademarks is the powerful vocal sounds of lead Yoseff Tucker, with tight harmonies in all the right places. Instrumental prowess is woven carefully with the vocals so that the energy never stops! The Gang showcases the flat-picking guitar playing of Yoseff Tucker and features Tom Naiman (banjo & vocals), Ella Naiman (fiddle, frailing banjo, vocals, & jokes), John Cogdill (mandolin, guitar, & bass), and Paul Chesterton (banjo & bass).

Forest Fires: destructive picking, deadly speed, ability to change direction at any moment, uncontrollable bluegrass combustion, burning originals and unpredictable behavior. Forest Fires are recording their debut album "You Know How Parties Get" and gearing up for tours, festival season, and whatever else my cross their path. So look out! The band's incendiaries are Emery Barter (dobro), Becky Levi (vocals), Toby Oler (banjo), Jesse Potralski (guitar), Zach Sharpe (bass), and Ted Silverman (mandolin).
