The Banner Mountain Boys will be playing traditional and contemporary bluegrass music at Hog Wild, 38 Main St. in Placerville, on Saturday, April 6 from 5 to 8 p.m.
The four band members include Taylor Carey on guitar and vocals, Rob Shotwell on banjo and vocals, Ron Gaynor on resophonic guitar and vocals, and Cecelia Shotwell on upright bass. The group hails from Nevada County and takes its name from Taylor’s residence up on Banner Mountain.
Flatpicker Carey was a founding member of the South Loomis Quickstep as well as other well-known Northern California bands.
Shotwell favors the traditional Scruggs-style of picking and enjoys throwing in melodic and bluesy sounds as well. He picked the five-string in recent years for On The Loose and Bite The Bullet.
An accomplished dobro picker as well as banjoist, Gaynor spent a couple of years picking with In Cahoots in southern California and several years with On The Loose in Grass Valley.
Shotwell fills out the sound with her wonderful upright bass and is a popular choice for many bands in the region.
There is no cover charge for the music.
