Dale Perry playing his new Wilson "Guardian" model banjo. The banjo is a beauty and sounds incredible onstage with Dale! All Steve Wilson's banjos are by custom order, everything is tailored to its new owner, right down to the HANDCUT pearl or abalone inlay patterns. Steve's luthier work is truly a lost art, no two banjo's are the same. He does not have an inventory. To talk with Steve about designing a Wilson Custom banjo just for you, email him at wilsonbanjoco@gmail.com.

WHAT FOLKS ARE SAYING ABOUT DP & CT

“This is one of those rare bands where every member is a veteran, each having played with the best traditional bluegrass groups of the 1970s and 80s..  No young kids emulating their elders.  These are the elders and it shows in the maturity and subtlety of their wonderful harmonies, tasteful backup work, and commitment to traditional bluegrass the way it was meant to be played.  When it comes to traditional bluegrass, David Parmley and the Cardinal Tradition is  the real deal."

Keith Irwin/House Concert Series

The band Monday night was probably the best bluegrass band I have ever heard. I was absolutely astounded by their performance on many levels --- not just the harmonies for which they are justly famous or the musicianship which you would expect given their bio's -- but for the way they used the single mic, how they rotated the fills and chop, the way they introduced each song, the way they introduced each other, the way they related to the audience, how they delivered each and every nuance of performance. I am sorry for those who missed it because it was such a stellar example of the best bluegrass can be.

Suzanne Suwanda/Gr8 Room House Concerts

We book 4 shows a year at our Acoustic Academy and we are very picky about who we have perform here. Last year we booked David Parmley and Cardinal Tradition and they tore the house up!
Not only are they great musicians and singers, but they are all great entertainers. We have had them here twice in the last year or so and both shows have been sold out and the audience came
away raving about David Parmley and Cardinal Tradition.
