THE OL’ PALS WITH OTTER OPRY
AT MONTEREY UNITED METHODIST CHURCH
Continuing our exciting 2021 season, Otter Opry is delighted to welcome the Ol’ Pals to Monterey on Saturday, November 13th. The Ol’ Pals is a California-based band bonded by decades-long friendships and a shared love of traditional bluegrass and country music. Most of the Pals have known each other since the early days of bluegrass in California.
Craig Wilson (guitar and vocals) and Larry Cohea (banjo) met as teenagers and were immersed in the heyday of the Bakersfield Sound back in the early 1960s. Craig met Butch Waller (mandolin) in 1968 when Butch was a founding member of one of California’s seminal bluegrass bands, High Country. Matt Dudman (bass) is an accomplished multi-instrumentalist and performs with the Pleasant Valley Boys as well as with Jenny Lynn and The Real Gone Daddies. One of California’s finest young bluegrass fiddlers, Jack Kinney, rounds out the band.
The Ol’ Pals bring an old-school, energetic, paint-peeling and soulful brand of bluegrass picking and singing that is sure to captivate you and get you tappin’ your toes! The event includes a public jam starting at 4:00pm and an outside dinner at 5:30pm ($10 in advance, $15 at the door). See you there!
$20/show (15 and under free); $10-15/pre-show dinner.
