With Josie and Rick’s move to Oregon, we decided to focus on an Oregon-based lineup for our Northwest performances and we were fortunate enough to connect with two long-time Oregon bluegrass notables, Dale and Suzanne Adkins. Dale has been a major force in the bluegrass scene both in the Northwest and at a national level as a member of Grammy-nominee Kate MacKenzie’s touring band in the 2000s. Suzanne has been a stately, rock-solid bassist and vocalist in many Northwest groups over the years. We are incredibly excited to be sharing the stage together, so stay tuned for future shows! Not to fear, however, Hal and Jon are still very much in the picture and will still perform with Rock Ridge in California or other locations when they can. Montana?
Rock Ridge has been wowing bluegrass audiences for over 9 years in California, and now in the Northwest since founders, Rick and Josie Grant moved to the beautiful Willamette Valley in Oregon. Rock Ridge specializes in hard-driving rhythm, stellar vocals and stunning instrumentals. Their repertoire includes traditional and contemporary bluegrass, originals, old-time country and gospel. The band's debut CD, Drifter's Prayer, has received praise and airplay across the US and abroad. Reviewers say: “This is good, straight-ahead bluegrass!”. “The embodiment of traditionally rooted original songs with bluegrass and gospel standards showcases an unencumbered dedication to the genre that sets them apart from a myriad of similar outfits.”
Rock Ridge is available for concerts, weddings, corporate & civic events, private parties and music festivals. We love to travel and would love to play for you!
