Headlining were Dave Evans and Jimmy Martin, two of the most talented, respected, disrespected, and rowdy bluegrass singers and pickers of their time.
In 1972, Evans joined Larry Sparks and the Lonesome Ramblers.
He learned to pick, sing, and write songs and by the early '70s, got his start playing bluegrass with Larry Sparks.
In 2002, nearly 25 years after forming his first band, Evans continues to explore traditional bluegrass with a number of like-minded pickers.
He spent three years with Sparks, then worked with other acts such as the Goins Brothers, Red Allen and the Kentuckians, and The Boys From Indiana, Lillie Mae, and the Dixie Gospelaires.
In 1978, Evans formed his own band: Dave Evans and The River Bend.
