The VT Bluegrass Pioneers is an exciting band that unites the talents of three of Vermont’s veteran and best-known bluegrass musicians: brothers “Banjo” Dan and Willy Lindner – co-founders of the prolific and well-traveled Banjo Dan & the Midnite Plowboys, and who, since the band’s retirement, have continued their career as the multi-faceted Sky Blue Boys – and Danny Coane, guitarist and dynamic lead singer formerly with such bands as the Throbulators and the Radio Rangers, and, since 1998, with Vermont’s nationally award-winning honky tonk heroes, the Starline Rhythm Boys. The Pioneers give a riveting performance. Still rooted in the hard-driving tradition of first-generation bluegrass, the three share lead and harmony vocals, and in a unique twist Dan and Danny, both of whom are commanding banjo players, alternate on that instrument and rhythm guitar, while Willy holds forth on mandolin.
