Hi and Howdy,

There's a lot
of tradition in a band that's come together in the past few years. That's because the love of roots and bluegrass music runs deep in this band that hails from Riverdale, a thriving artistic community nestled on the banks of the North Saskatchewan River, in Edmonton, Alberta.  The vocal harmonies are accompanied by the sweet and exciting sounds of banjo, guitar, mandolin, fiddle, dobro, and of course the acoustic bass.

In July 2004, the Riverdale Bluegrass Band was judged crowd favourite at the Blueberry Bluegrass Festival band competition. The same weekend, they were judged best band in a juried competition, and won a spot on the main stage at the 2005 festival and were honoured to be asked back to play in 2006.

We support good radio! If you want to catch some great bluegrass be sure and listen to CJSR where you can catch Doug Ritchie and Rob Baker doing Prairie Pickin' every Thursday night.  CKUA is the world's longest running listener-supported radio station and has Craig Korth hosting Fire on the Mountain Sunday mornings.  George McKnight has a great show called Uptown Bluegrass which can be heard  on www.uptownbluegrass.com.
