Rusty Hinges Bluegrass Band

Hailing from across the Evergreen State of Washington, Rusty Hinges Bluegrass Band plays classic and contemporary bluegrass music combined with good natured fun and humor. Each member of Rusty Hinges is a veteran of the Pacific Northwest bluegrass scene. Their collective experience results in a musical program that is polished and entertaining. The driving roll of the banjo, along with lead and harmony vocals is provided by Al Price. Jan Delfel is the glue that holds it all together with a steady pulse on bass. Rhythm guitar, lead and harmony vocals are brought by Jim Delfel. On lead guitar and vocals is Bryan Chaffe. Reade Obern (also known as The Fiddling Ranger) will be joining us on fiddle. Rusty Hinges Bluegrass Band has become a fixture of the Pacific Northwest bluegrass festival circuit having played at Wenatchee River Bluegrass Festival, Sacajawea Bluegrass Festival and Dutch Oven Rendezvous, Winlock Bluegrass Festival, Mt. St. Helens Bluegrass Festival, Rainier Pickin’ Party, Goldendale Pickersfest, George Bluegrass Festival, GorgeGrass and Hovander Homestead Bluegrass Festival.
