“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.”
– Syracuse NewTimes
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.
Rounding out the band is veteran bassist John Dancks, a member of the Syracuse Area Music Hall of Fame, and Perry Cleaveland, one of the most in-demand mandolin players in Upstate New York. Perry’s virtuoso playing has been featured in just about every prominent acoustic act in the area, recorded and live, bluegrass and otherwise.
In concert, you’ll hear The Cadleys perform 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.
Join us for an evening of great singing, solid musicianship, and entertaining rapport.
