Dale Perry to Grasstowne

Dale Perry endorses Huber BanjosGrasstowne had no sooner arrived home from their Yukon adventures than they announced the hiring of heralded multi-instrumentalist Dale Perry on bass and bass vocals.

Dale has had quite a career in bluegrass, working with some of the most prestigious acts in the business. He has done time with Lonesome River Band, The Bluegrass Cardinals, Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver, David Parmley & Continental Divide, and just recently, with Pine Mountain Railroad. During that time he has been a banjo player and a bass player, and even played both at different times with Doyle!

Phil Leadbetter was happy to share the news of Dale’s move to Grasstowne.

“We are very excited to have him. He is one of the true veterans of this music.”

Dale Perry on bass with The Bluegrass CardinalsPhil mentioned that even though Dale will be touring with them from this point forward, he will not appear on the band’s new album, expected later this year. That will feature Travis Greer on bass, who had been with them for the past few years and recorded the new project with Grasstowne.
