Wheatland County - Rhythm & Bluegrass (1981)


We dug up a Herald article that calls Wheatland County one of the city's first bluegrass bands - which kind of surprises us. We're pretty sure there must have been others - but, we'll take them at their word. 

The one thing we won't take them at their word on is the spelling of guitarist Al LaMonoca's name - LaMonoca was co-founder of the Foothills Bluegrass Music Society, which we're  pleased to see is still going strong. And we're equally pleased to see LaMonoca is still playing and hosting an annual open mic night.

Get the LP here.
