VBF Video Theatre 004: The Afterthoughts Burn Up the "Cuckoo's Nest"

It's another beautiful morning and we have another video for you on Valley Bluegrass Festival Video Theatre! This morning we have a SMOKIN' HOT version of Cuckoo's Nest by The Afterthoughts:

Aaron (17) and Macy(13) burn up the strings on a thrilling, lilting rendition of Cuckoo's Nest... utilizing the whole arsenal of instruments... Mando, fiddles, viola...during a concert by the Afterthoughts at the 2013 Bluewaters Bluegrass Festival.

BIO

The Afterthoughts, a high octane brand of “diversified bluegrass,” featuring Aaron Castilla (18) on  mandolin and fiddle, Macy Morgan (14) on fiddle, Dave Lorang on bass,  Jeff Renfrow on dobro, Jim Shamp and Dave Doud on guitars,  is perhaps one of the Northwest’s only mixed generation bands that isn’t a family band.

They have played all sorts of venues spanning the Northwest like Bluewaters and Newport Bluegrass Festivals, Spokane Folk Festival, private parties, weddings, funerals, nursing homes and  Camp Goodtimes (camp for children with cancer), just to name a few of the favorites.

The Afterthoughts will leave you gasping for breath and wanting more!   They consist of two of Spokane area’s talented young folk and four talented and funny older “retired” guys!  What a perfect mix!
