David Parmley at The Station Inn

When we posted last month with news that bluegrass balladeer David Parmley was returning to music in 2016, it created quite a stir. His many fans from both The Bluegrass Cardinals and Continental Divide were delighted to learn that he would be coming off the road as a tour bus driver, and back on as a bluegrass singing star.

Over the past 40 years, David has recorded some of the most enduring and unforgettable songs in bluegrass, and is perhaps second to only Larry Sparks in the soulful and heart-wrenching category of vocalists.

This past weekend, he played a show at Nashville’s Station Inn with the band he will tour with next year, and as always, a couple of videos made their way to YouTube.



Thanks to YouTube user L Adams for capturing these. You can find a couple more on her user page.

Dale Perry is on banjo and finger-style guitar, Ron Spears on mandolin, Steve Day on fiddle, and John Marquess on bass.

Next year can’t come soon enough!
