Chesapeake (The Kennedy Center)


Chesapeake Mike Auldridge - dobro,lap steel and pedal steel Jimmy Gaudreau - mandolin Moondi Klein - guitar T. Michael Coleman - bass Chesapeake is a young band of seasoned players who all honed their chops in traditional bluegrass ensembles. Now they're on their own and trying out every musical flirtation they fancy, in a "new acoustic" band that challenges all record store filing systems. The rich, layered sound of Chesapeake is distinctive among bluegrass, folk, blues, jazz or rock 'n' roll - all of which they touch on in their sharp originals and sparkling new renditions of old standards. Their complex tapestry of instrumental work creates a distinctive framework for soaring, heartrending vocals.
