50 Years In The Bluegrass celebrates Feldmann's long career as a performer, collector, professor, and presenter of bluegrass, old-time, folk, and blues music in Southern California.
Re-creating some of Santa Barbara's folk music history, featuring many of Peter's musical friends and associates, this one time only event will include virtuoso violinist Jim Wimmer, guitarist and blue grass historian Mayne Smith, bluesmen Tom Ball and Kenny Sultan with Alastair Greene, country and folk musicians Rick Cunha, and David Jackson (Mother's Boys), Tom Lee, David West, and Blaine Sprouse (The Very Lonesome Boys), Francine Feldmann, and three-time National Fiddle Champion Byron Berline. Berline just received a Lifetime Achievement Award in Nashville last month. Representing the Appalachian string band tradition are the Gap Tooth Mountain Ramblers - “From the land of hog and hominy, possum and taters, where the whiskey’s made out of corn and the women don’t smell like talcum powder... A string band with the hairy side out,” said Feldmann who knows what he’s talking about since he’s in the group with Wimmer, Michael Mendelson and Tom Wolverton.
