“The Cadleys have an easy rapport that reveals much about their shared virtuosity and musical kinship. Their considerable chops give them an effortless, tight sound.”

The Brothers Blue:
“A fierce forging of folk-like musical mayhem that delighted their audience.”
South Buffalo Courier

Based in Syracuse, The Cadleys are one of the area’s most entertaining acoustic bands, performing everything from traditional mountain ballads and bluegrass classics to innovative acoustic covers and original songs. 

John (vocals, guitar, mandolin) and Cathy (vocals, guitar, banjo) Cadley follow in the tradition of great male-female duets like Ian & Sylvia, George Jones and Tammy Wynette, and Emmylou Harris and Gram Parsons. They show how their voices blended in seamless harmony can produce one powerful sound. Joining them are veteran bassist John Dancks and virtuoso Perry Cleaveland on mandolin and vocals for an evening of great singing, solid musicianship, and entertaining rapport.

Rooted in the fertile tradition of old-time fiddle music, The Brothers Blue grow a sound all their own – offering a hybrid which unites fresh, original songwriting with elements from country, bluegrass, Cajun, and Irish music. 

The band features Ben Haravitch on banjo, guitar, and bass; Matthew Sperber on guitar and bass; and Charlie Coughlin on fiddle and mandolin; with all three contributing to the vocal harmonies. Winners of Golden Link’s 2015 New Voices Emerging Artists Showcase, The Brothers Blue perform original and traditional American folk music throughout the Buffalo, Rochester, and Finger Lakes regions.
