Fiddlestix are an acoustic trio, specializing in old-time style music with an original twist. Using traditional instruments including fiddle, banjo, mandolin, guitar, octave mandolin and bass violin, they cover a wide range of music. American and Celtic fiddle tunes, old and new songs blend harmoniously with their own compositions. 'Cactus' Bob Cole plays the fiddle, mandolin, guitar, and octave mandolin, and his wife Prairie Flower (Chris Stevenson) accompanies him on frailing banjo, guitar, and standup bass. Together they have entertained in the California Mother Lode territory in and around Columbia State Park for several decades as members of Faux Renwah, Horse Opry, and Hide the Whiskey. They have an impressive repertoire of old time and original tunes, ranging from authentic gold rush songs of the 1850's to favorites from the 1960's and beyond, which they mix with a sprinkling of Irish and American fiddle tunes. The third member is Prairie Flower's son Michael P. Kennedy, who has also become an expert on the full array of acoustic instruments. Both he and Cactus Bob are acclaimed songwriters, adding an original dimension to this family band. The Red Barn Community Music Series is a monthly concert series showcasing local, regional, and national musicians performing old time, bluegrass, swing, Celtic, blues, and other forms of acoustic roots music. A $15.00 fee is collected at the door (no tickets are sold in advance). All proceeds from the show go directly to the artists. The Red Barn is located at 2180 Palisades Ave. in Los Osos. Doors open at 4:30, the potluck supper and potluck band start at 5:00 PM., the show begins at 6:00 PM. BYOB and a dish to share for the potluck supper. This show is made possible through the generous support and assistance of the entire Red Barn Community (aka Children of the Barn) and with support from KCBX Public Radio and Live Oak Music Festival.

Up The Bluegrass? takes audiences on a tour of ancient ballads, blazing instrumentals, old-time love and murder songs, to railroad epics, country blues, comedy, and cowboy songs from the Old West.
