Sideline is a pedigreed six-piece powerhouse whose members have set the style and pace in bluegrass for over two decades. Boasting alumni of IIIrd Tyme Out, Cherryholmes, Lonesome River Band, Mountain Heart and James King, the sextet plays blazing yet soulful bluegrass. Touring in support of their latest album “Front and Center,” Sideline will perform at The Palms Playhouse on Friday, Nov. 16 at 8 p.m. Tickets are $22. Founders Steve Dilling (banjo), Skip Cherryholmes (guitar) and Jason Moore (bass) can all claim their own historical significance to the genre as members of highly awarded groups, multiple Grand Ole Opry appearances and years of national and international touring. What started as a side project for the seasoned players soon moved to the front and center. Slideline’s pulse-pounding drive, songs sung from the heart, timing, dynamics and visceral emotion remind a lot of people why they fell in love with bluegrass in the first place. The band, recorded or live, moves from well-chosen, hard-hitting, neo-traditional covers of classic songs to new material. Their on-stage energy, instrumental finesse and powerful vocal harmonies are classic North Carolina bluegrass. Sideline has released three national albums and currently records for the highly awarded Mountain Home Music Company based near Asheville, N.C. Banjoist Steve Dilling’s credits include the Lonesome River Band, and 20-plus years with Russell Moore and IIIrd Tyme Out. He’s also made his mark as a humorous emcee. Bassist Jason Moore is a long-time veteran of the bluegrass and Americana scenes. He first worked in bluegrass with James King in 1993, and was a member of Mountain Heart during the band’s bluegrass and Americana phases. Moore has been on three Grammy-nominated projects, been nominated for the International Bluegrass Music Association’s Bass Player of the Year at four times, received two IBMA wins for Recorded Event of the Year and one for Gospel Event of the Year. Skip Cherryholmes started playing mandolin at age 9, but later switched to guitar when his family formed the world famous Cherryholmes family band. Skip played with his family for almost 13 years until they decided to disband in 2011. The Cherryholmes family won the 2005 IBMA Entertainer of the Year award, and received five Grammy nominations.  He also played with bluegrass legend Lou Reid and his group Lou Reid and Carolina. Mandolinist Troy Boone also plays banjo and guitar, and studied at East Tennessee State University’s bluegrass program. Guitarist Bailey Coe began playing mandolin at 11 years old, but switched to guitar at the age of 18. He played with the GrassCats for two and half years before coming to Sideline. Fiddler Daniel Greeson’s interest in playing was sparked when his uncle found a fiddle in the trash and gave it to him. He’s studied fiddle privately, through fiddlers’ conventions and in North Carolina and East Tennessee State University’s bluegrass program. Tickets for Sideline’s Nov. 16 show at The Palms are available at Pacific Ace Hardware in Winters, Armadillo Music in Davis, Davids’ Broken Note in Woodland, online via The Palms’ website and Eventbrite and at the door if not sold out.
