The Bands

Strangers1The Bluegrass Strangers are a favorite every year according to concert goers and are back by popular demand for the 5th year!   The Bluegrass Strangers are one of the most exciting, straight ahead, traditional bands performing today!  They come to Myrtle Beach from Kentucky and Ohio. Dick Webb from Franklin Furnace, Ohio doesn’t have to take a backseat to anyone when it comes to playing a traditional five-string banjo.  He also does a fantastic job playing old style claw hammer.  Dick also sings baritone and low tenor in the trios and bass in the quartet.  Jimmy Lykins, from Garrison, Kentucky is lead singer with songs straight from the heart with soul and feeling like no one else.  He also plays a strong rhythm guitar.  Scott Tackett, is a new and upcoming strong lead singer and great guitar player, which is full of energy and excitement. Dave Baker, is a great asset to the band with his rock solid timing on the upright bass. Dave also sings tenor and high lead in the band. The newest member of the band Donnie Collings, who rounds out the group, is a outstanding mandolin player that for sure should not be overlooked. His mandolin playing is tasteful, exciting and full of energy. Together they produce a great sound that you will definitely enjoy!  They will perform their program of traditional bluegrass music. Band member Dick Webb and his wife Wendy will also handle the sound for the Ocean Lakes’ Premier Bluegrass Weekend. See more at www.bluegrass-strangers.com.
