About Naked Bootleggers plus Windy Hill

The Naked Bootleggers: Local favorites from the Santa Cruz Mountains bring a fresh approach to OLD TIME MOUNTAIN MUSIC. Reviving the standards of yesterday while writing standards for tomorrow, local musicians Don Mackessy (banjo), Ona Stewart(guitar), S.T. Young(guitar, washboard, harmonica), James Mackessy (bass), Jeremy Lampel (mandolin) are bridging the gap between old time and contemporary music with captivating vocal harmonies, lyrical creativity and that high lonesome sound of old.

Windy Hill: It's immediately evident at a Windy Hill show that the band is excited about bluegrass music and have big fun picking and singing. They're becoming increasingly well-known – and are winning awards – for their entertaining performances. Windy Hill began years ago as an idea in a Menlo Park (CA) High School wood shop class, where two 17-year-old friends sat around their work station sanding their projects and talking about live music. They discovered a mutual love for the songs of Bill Monroe, Carter Stanley, and Jimmy Martin and set out to learn to play and sing traditional music
