David Parmley & Cardinal Tradition

David Parmley and his late father Don founded the Bluegrass Cardinals in 1974, and toured for nearly two decades. One of the hallmarks of this great band was David‘s distinctive, warm and soulful voice, which distinguished him as one of the finest lead singers in bluegrass. David then founded another exceptional, long-lived band, Continental Divide, which he fronted for another 20 years. His current band, David Parmley and Cardinal Tradition, continues this remarkable pattern. Its members include veterans of both his prior bands who collectively represent over 180 years of bluegrass experience. Their music is traditional but not at all predictable. They breathe new life into old favorites with an easy-going yet energetic performance style that gets the whole house moving.
