It was during Adiaha’s Bluegrass Camp 2019: On the night of Friday, October 4th, Mary Lucey-Cardine and Billy Cardine (50% of the band “Lover’s Leap” https://loversleapband.com/ ) had given a haunting concert of which we have added two pieces at the beginning and the end of the video clip.

To all the bluegrass community and their families EBMA wishes that you to keep safe and follow the instructions and guideline ..read more
