Heartlands Hayride April 12, 2014

The World's Original WDVR Heartlands Hayride country music variety show

Big Valley Bluegrass Band is where youíll find a mix of traditional and contemporary Bluegrass picking, intertwined with competent leads and tight harmony vocals. BVB is proud and humbled to be a recent winner of the Lehigh Valley Music Awards "Best Bluegrass Band" Their latest CD, "The Other Side of the Valley", more than amply demonstrates the versatility of this stellar acoustic extravaganza. Hailing from New Jersey and Pennsylvania, they are regulars at the many area festivals, jams and stage grass shows. They maintain a traditional Bluegrass sound, but are not against slipping in a nontraditional tune now and then, but still "keeping it down to earth." The guys and gals are in demand, simply because they play and sing the Real Bluegrass. www.bigvalleybluegrass.com

Bird On The Mountain Carrying on the great tradition of mountain music and parlor songs, Bird on the Mountain tells the story of rural America, from the farmer to the hobo to the hard life lived by tough working Americans of the last two centuries. Jay and Linda are simple and truthful just like their music. Hint: could this be the Linda King of days gone by??

Music and video here >> http://www.birdonthemountain.net/ PreWar at its best!!

Chris Val, veteran old-school country star, says he can't stay away. Chris has performed with Tex Ritter, Ernest Tubb and many others. This fondly remembered veteran of Trenton radio, has recorded for Starday and many other labels, and continues to thrill crowds throughout Delaware Valley. And he can yodel !!

Tal Patton, a country singer known for his haunting Johnny Cash imitations, returns by listenersí request. Home grown with pride in the Garden State, Tal is often remembered from the old days. One of the busiest independents, Tal gives up bigger times for HH. http://www.talpatton.com/

Chuck Pierman's homespun humor and lyrical comedy provide a welcome respite to the mix as he takes a break from his Delaware Township deer and groundhog farm.

Bill Brandon, our masterful band leader and organizer, reflects star-shine on the barn dance floor as he fronts the Hayride band and keeps the boys on their toes, including these fine musicians.

Al Kessel, master musician, promoter, producer, publicist, singer and a talented writer.

Ben Lawson, master of the pedal steel, always evokes a chuckle, great musical talent.

Jim Thompson Mr. Personality: always on base thumping the bass, except when hooking bass!!

Kyle Miholics keeps the beat with some very tasteful percussion work.
