High CountryJoin traditional favorites High Country and Dix Bruce & Julie Cline as the Freight welcomes the New Year with our annual bluegrass gala, featuring hot pickin’, a fabulous buffet, and silly hats – plus sparkling beverages at the stroke of midnight!

High Country has been playing bona fide bluegrass for more than 40 years now, continuing in the vibrant tradition of Bill Monroe, the Stanley Brothers, and Flatt & Scruggs. Bluegrassmusic.com praised their pungent harmonies and Bluegrass Unlimited has called them “one of the lonesomest, hard-drivingest traditional bluegrass bands alive.” Led by Butch Waller on mandolin, the band also features Larry Cohea on banjo, bassist Glenn Dauphin, fiddler Tom Bekeny, Bob Waller on guitar, and Jim Mintun on dobro. These masters of bluegrass deliver driving rhythms, deft picking, and soulful singing with a vital mix of powerful originals and outstanding standards, from blues to breakdowns to gospel tunes sung in close harmony.

Dix Bruce & Julie ClineDix Bruce & Julie Cline play sparkling originals and classics of American roots music, from bluegrass to blues, rockabilly to folk, country to a touch of jazz. Their gorgeous harmonies and deft picking on guitar and mandolin make every song a treat. Dix has been performing and recording in the Bay Area since the mid-1970s, and he finally convinced Julie to venture out of her ceramics studio and join him on stage.
