Chris Cerna & Bluegrass Republic Perform Live on KSON's Bluegrass Special

They get a surprise banjo player to boot

June 27, 2016

Chris Cerna & Bluegrass Republic came into the studio on Sunday night June 26 for our regular "San Diego Bluegrass Society Live" feature that we do once a month. Their regular banjo player Billy Reid couldn't join the other three members of the band so I pulled out my banjo and played along with them (with their permission of course). I don't play much anymore but it's fan to jam a little bit on live radio--you never quite know what's going to happen. Thankfully I knew at least a couple of their songs and could make some banjo sounds! 

Hear them play live on Tuesday night June 28 at the Boll Weevil (9330 Clairemont Mesa Blvd) at 8 PM. It's free and the public is invited. Visit Chris' Facebook page here. The Bluegrass Republic is Chris Cerna, mandolin; Celeste Cerna, string bass; David Dickey III, guitar; and Billy Reid (banjo).
