More changes in Quicksilver

Doyle Lawson - photo by Ted LehmannDoyle Lawson has made another set of changes to the Quicksilver lineup. Dale Perry will come on board to play banjo and sing bass, and Jason Leek will play bass and sing tenor. The new band will take the stage within the next two weeks.

Perry is a former member of Quicksilver, who did time in the band on both bass and banjo. He had been playing bass with Grasstowne, and before that was on banjo with David Parmley.

Leek has been playing bass with Barry Scott & Second Wind.

Departing banjo player Joey Cox said that Doyle had found no fault with his picking, but that he felt like he needed to make some changes to refine the sound of the band’s vocal trio and quartet.

For his part, Cox intends to return to college and is looking for a band with a more part time/weekend schedule while he is in school. He can be reached via Facebook.

So… it looks like Grasstowne and Barry Scott are looking for some new members too. It’s that time of year.
