Good Ol’ Persons reunion at Grass Valley

Good Ol' Persons circa 1995One of the highlights of the 2015 CBA Father’s Day Festival in Grass Valley, CA was a reunion of one of the west coast’s favorite bluegrass bands, The Good Ol’ Persons. The group performed throughout the western US and Canada from 1975 to 1995, after which they have made only sporadic appearances.

This CBA show reunited the original band, with Kathy Kallick on guitar, John Reischman on mandolin, Sally Van Meter on reso-guitar, Paul Shelasky on fiddle, and Bethany Raine on bass.

Here’s how they opened their set at Grass Valley.
