The VBA is proud to present a Special Concert with Cliff Perry and Laurel Bliss

CLIFF PERRY and LAUREL BLISS are recognized veterans in the bluegrass and old-time music community of the Pacific Northwest, respected by their peers and beloved by their fans.
Together they formed the heart and soul of Southfork, a legendary Northwest bluegrass band, who performed for almost two decades in Washington,and up and down the West Coast.

Nowadays, Cliff and Laurel sing as a duo, with Cliff on guitar and Laurel on dobro, and have been acclaimed by Jody Stecher and Kate Brislin as “one of the finest old-time duets we’ve heard.”

Singing and playing with each other for the past thirty years, they create a sound that is at once sweet, strong and soulful, giving renewed life to old-time songs, country ballads and bluegrass gems. Both Cliff and Laurel are capable instructors on guitar, dobro and vocals, with experience teaching at the Puget Sound Guitar Workshop, Festival of American Fiddle Tunes, British Columbia Bluegrass Workshop and the Swannanoa Gathering. They have had the honour to open for country legend Emmylou Harris, the pleasure of opening and performing with Jody Stecher and Kate Brislin,
and the thrill of playing onstage with Kenny Baker and Josh Graves.

Their duet album, “Old Pal”, songs of the Carter Family and others was well received and voted the best Old-Time Recording by County Sales in 1994. They are pleased to announce the release of their second recording, “Spirit of Love”, a new collection of old time duets with instrumental accompaniment on guitar and dobro.
