Bluegrass Music with The Cadleys

SAMMY Award Winning Band Performs

Husband and wife duo, John and Cathy Cadley, are traveling around New York State to share their ever changing sound.  The Cadleys are known for their bluegrass music and a majority of their songs are written by John.

The Cadleys have expanded, adding two new band members to the mix, now making them a four piece band. John Dancks plays the bass and Perry Cleaveland provides vocals and plays the mandolin and fiddle.

Along with writing for the band, John also writes and produces his own music. One of John’s songs, “Time” was at the top of the national bluegrass charts for three months.  When John was a teenager, he was a member of a folk group called The Glencoves, whose song “Hootenany” was a Top 40 hit.

Cathy Cadley came from a church music background and was the music director at Immaculate Conception Church in Fayetteville for 21 years.

On May 7, The Cadleys will be at the Tully Art Council and will be speaking and teaching attendees some bluegrass traditions. The event will have songs and stories in the bluegrass tradition, giving those at the event the opportunity to interact with the Cadleys.

The Cadleys SAMMY Award winning band also performed an original song “New York Hills”.
