Americana Music & More from The Cadleys!

The entertaining Syracuse-based Americana/bluegrass band The Cadleys returns to Rochester for a Golden Link concert on Saturday, January 28 at 7:30 pm at Greece Baptist Church.


Featuring John and Cathy Cadley, John “JD” Dancks, and Perry Cleaveland, the band performs everything from classics like “Bury Me Beneath the Willow” and Bill Monroe’s “Blue and Lonesome,” to Alison Krauss’ “The Lucky One,” to the Louvin Brother’s “Cash on the Barrelhead,” to Cathy’s knockout version of “Over the Rainbow.” 


You’ll also hear some innovative acoustic arrangements of favorite Beatles tunes like “I Will,” plus a generous sampling of John’s original songs, many of which have been recorded by national bluegrass artists like Jim Hurst, Missy Raines, Tony Trischka, and Lou Reid, who took John’s song “Time” to the #1 spot on the national bluegrass charts. John recently released a new album, I Never Knew, which includes 13 new original songs.


In short, a live show by The Cadleys does everything audiences come to a concert for: great singing, solid musicianship, entertaining rapport, and the feeling that they’ve enjoyed a truly special night of music.


Tickets for The Cadleys will be available at the door, but we encourage purchasing in advance through the website to speed up your entry into the concert. And purchasing in advance will save you money over the gate ticket prices!
