We’ve had some great acts come along to entertain us at the Sportsmans Arms in Four Lanes over the last 8 years and Bakerfield are right up there with the best!
It was a cracking night at Dreamers Folk last Sunday, a good crowd in, John Heath MC’ ing as only he can and Loraine & Pete ( Bakerfield ) singing and playing their hearts out for us. It was their first visit to Dreamers and they quickly dispelled any doubts that a Bluegrass duo could satisfy a folky crowd. Put all labels aside and you have two genuine, honest performers singing songs that mean something to them and delivering those songs in such a way as to draw an emotional response from the listener.
Songs from Mark Erelli, Jonathan Byrd, Steve Earle and Guy Clark, supplemented with Pete’s own superb writings all garnished with beautiful vocals and a variety of instruments had the audience crying for more at the end of the evening. Wonderful!!
