Join traditional favorites High Country and Dix Bruce & Jim Nunally as the Freight welcomes the New Year with our annual bluegrass gala, featuring hot pickin', a fabulous buffet, and silly hats, plus sparkling cranberry-apple juice at the stroke of midnight!
High Country's album, The Earthquake (Strictly Country), firmly reinforced its status as California's premier band in the Bill Monroe and Stanley Brothers tradition, and they recently followed it up with a new CD, Perfect Companions. Dubbed "One of the lonesomest, hard-drivingest traditional bluegrass bands alive" by Bluegrass Unlimited, High Country offers driving rhythms, deft picking, and soulful singing with a vital mix of powerful originals and standards, from blues to breakdowns to gospels sung in close harmony. Led by Butch Waller, the band also features Larry Cohea on banjo, bassist Glenn Dauphin, fiddler Tom Bekeny, Bob Waller on guitar, and Jim Mintun on dobro.
Sharing the entertainment hat with High Country are Dix Bruce & Jim Nunally, a duo in the true down-home style: two soulful voices and two acoustic guitars, mixing folk, bluegrass, and country, spiced with humor, beautiful harmonies, and hot picking. Jim and Dix's latest CD, Brothers at Heart, was nominated for Outstanding Country/Alt Country Album of 2004 by the California Music Awards.
