For many years Borderline was a vibrant force in the local music scene. When the idea for a reunion concert was presented by Belle Fiore Winery, the band took little time seizing the opportunity to celebrate their 25th anniversary.
Drawing from the rich heritage of Americana, bluegrass, roots and rockabilly music, Borderline’s original compositions are accompanied by music from the likes Emmylou Harris, Johnny Cash, Rodney Crowell, the Louvin Brothers and many more.
Featuring the rich three part harmonies and multi-instrumental skills of Sam Cuenca, Bob Evoniuk, Emy Phelps and Bob DiChiro, the band has been featured at countless venues and festivals throughout the North West including the likes of the Britt Festival, Wintergrass and others.
Borderline’s reunion show will feature world-renowned fiddler Darol Anger as a very special guest. Darol, along with a handful of pioneering musicians to include the likes of David Grisman, Tony Rice and others, have been the catalyst for the popularity of the rich roots music scene currently being enjoyed around the country and the rest of the world.
