The California Bluegrass Reunion brings together six internationally known instrumentalists who all have deep connections to the Golden State. The collective is highlighted by the outrageous double fiddling of California-based fiddlers Chad Manning and Brandon Godman and features an abundance of original instrumentals from mandolinist John Reischman and banjo player Bill Evans, who is a 2022 recipient of the Steve Martin Banjo Prize. Anchoring the rhythm section is Jim Nunally on guitar and vocals and Sharon Gilchrist on bass. These musicians have made music together in various combinations for decades but this combination is truly special. They will be performing almost all original tunes and songs composed by the band members.
