Chris Cerna and Bluegrass Republic is making a much anticipated return appearance as SDBS Featured Band. This great group is Chris Cerna on mandolin and vocals, David Dickey III on guitar and vocals, Celeste Cerna on upright bass and vocals, and Mark Cassidy on banjo.
Chris Cerna and David Dickey III were both members of the Bladerunners who appeared for SDBS on many occassions. The Bluegrass Republic band members are all accomplished veterans of top notch bluegrass, and regularly deliver a strong, traditional sound. This will be a great show!
