Chris Davis, who has been playing mandolin with Junior Sisk & Rambler’s Choice, has made his exit.
Anyone close to a bluegrass musician knows the difficulties that job can bring, with the long drives and time away from family, and Chris decided that staying closer to home was where he wanted to be. He is planning to start a new musical venture, a country band with his wife, Julie Reeves Davis.
Junior tells us that it was their recently-concluded 14 day tour that cinched it for Chris. Rambler’s Choice had been in Canada, down to Bean Blossom, and then back up to Ontario on this two week swing.
But as Sisk tells us, “the show must go on,” and they will be trying out a few possible replacements over the newt few weeks.
We’re sorry to see Chris go, but we wish him and Julie all the best. Good luck to both of you on this new adventure!”
You can catch them this weekend at RudyFest and the Ozark River Festival, and next week at The Ryman and Circle E.
