Please note, this event has expired.
Hard-driving bluegrass band David Parmley and Cardinal Tradition play the Station Inn.
David Parmley began his musical career at age 15 and by the time he turned 17, he began his full time career as a member of The Bluegrass Cardinals. That band featured his father, Don Parmley, and three Los Angeles musicians. In 1975 they made their way to the Washington, DC area and began performing several nights a week for several years. David’s lead guitar and baritone voice was the backbone to The Cardinal sound. Dozens of musicians have worked with David and Don over the years, but “The Sound” remained constant. The Bluegrass Cardinals recorded dozens of projects during their 25-year run. The material is considered the finest to come out of the ’70s and ’80s bluegrass era. David left The Bluegrass Cardinals in the ’90s to pursue a solo career featuring a more modern approach to bluegrass music. David Parmley and Continental Divide topped the bluegrass charts throughout the ’90s.
