Phinney Ridge Winter Festival

Phinney Ridge Community Center, 6532 Phinney Ave N, Seattle, WA 98103

It is the way to kick off the Holidays, listening to the Weavils at the Phinney Ridge Winter Festival play classic Christmas Carols, like "Thanks a Lot", "New Camptown Races" and "My Whiskey is All Gone. OK, maybe not exactly Christmas Carols, but the event is sure a lot of fun. Hope to see you there!

About Us

Leading this Seattle Bluegrass band is the entertaining MC and banjo player, Greg Lawless. The band performs a variety of genres, making them not only hard to classify, but uniquely diverse.

You will hear not only bluegrass; but Western Swing, Cajun, “Celtgrass”, Hawaiian, and even a rendition of a rock song or two.

Blended into the mix are songs written by their talented mandolin player, Chris Davidson.  Chris is a wonderful vocalist, leaning toward a traditional bluegrass sound,  EVEN featuring a yodel now and again.

All of these songs are tied together by the harmonious sounds of a magnificent dobro, played by Mark Meyers, who also provides sweet harmonica interludes.

The rhythm section, led by Pete Thorn (guitar) and Mike Karbowski (bass), keeps the band on the beat.

No introductions could be complete without mentioning the mellow baritone voice of David Grout, who elevates the vocal numbers to stratospheric heights.

Gray Pederson is our "utility infielder" stepping in masterfully whenever our bass player or guitar player are abducted by aliens, (or whatever excuse it is this time!)
