The VT Bluegrass Pioneers - Kelly Brush Foundation Ride

 —  —

Middlebury College, Middlebury VT

The VT Bluegrass Pioneers will be set up and pickin' an' singin' at the finish line of the great Kelly Brush Foundation Ride just up from the Middlebury College Field House. They have played this annual event before. Quite a scene with many bike riders and hugely attended for a great cause. Pete Riley will be filling in on bass for the Pioneers' regular bass man, Sam Blagden. Of course, Pete was a "Plowboy" for a number of years in "Banjo Dan & the Mid-Nite Plowboys", of which Banjo Dan and his brother, Willy, Lindner were founding members - a premier Vermont bluegrass band that was together for 40 yrs (1972-2012).
