Cache Valley Drifters ~ West Coast Bluegrass & Americana

  • Live Oak Music Festival Live Oak Camp, Hwy 154 Santa Barbara, CA USA (map)

For decades, Cache Valley Drifters were a staple at the Live Oak Hot Licks stage on Sunday mornings. Then they disbanded, and we were all sad. But guess what! They’re back for a reunion performance on Stage Too at the 30th annual Live Oak Music Festival. The Cache Valley Drifters have been pushing the boundaries of American acoustic music for over four decades. CVDʻs sound is a blend of a wide range of musical styles and influences with a focus on vocals rich with harmony. While their music sits on a solid foundation of Bluegrass and Folk, they create a collective alchemy of all musical interests the individual members bring to the table. The result: performances that cover a lot of musical territory while maintaining a common thread that can only be described as the CVD style. Their shows are as likely to include modern bluegrass interpretations of songs by Greg Brown, Etta James and Woody Guthrie, as they are to feature traditional bluegrass tunes and songs by the late folk-singer Kate Wolf.
