This is the official site for David Parmley & Cardinal Tradition. All of these faces will be recognized by long time Bluegrass fans. This quintet has over 180 years of experience performing in the Bluegrass genre. 2016 is the breakout year for this configuration. All of the members have played together in different bands as well as the Original Bluegrass Cardinals or Continental Divide. As the name suggests, this band is bringing back the songs and sounds of The Bluegrass Cardinals. The Cardinals were at the top of the Bluegrass heap from 1976 to 1991. They will be bringing back the smooth three and four part harmonies the Cardinals were renowned for. They are also creating new recordings featuring great old Bluegrass Cardinal classics and new songs that fit perfectly with the originals. Watch for them at a Festival or Concert series in your area.
