Bear Mountain Boys.

Now that we have had a little bit of winter weather, we might get some green this year, after all. But there will be plenty of green, anyway, at Fiddlers Crossing on St. Patrick's Day, Saturday, March 17. A concert of Irish songs and tunes will be presented by some of our local musicians at 7 p.m., March 17, with doors opening at 6:30 p.m. Tickets are $15.

Performing in the concert will be the Bear Mountain Boys, who usually are heard around town playing bluegrass gospel. The quartet has dusted off the bodhran and prepared a set of Irish airs, jigs, hornpipes, reels and songs to get all toes tapping and heads bobbing.

Jim Davis, on mandolin and fiddle, Rick Morgan on guitar, Scott Sparling on fiddle, banjo and whistle, and Dave Brown on electric bass are now The Bear Mountain Boys.

Opening for them will be members of the former pub band, Paint A Rose. Locals "Wee Davy" Gamble and Dave Brown on guitar, and Debby Hand on cello and tenor banjo, will be joined by Dennis and Debbie Massie playing accordion and piano. The Massies will be down from Washington state to visit family and are happy to reunite with their friends and fellow band members. As in all concerts at Fiddlers Crossing, coffee, tea and goodies will be included in the price of the ticket. It's a good bet there will be shamrock cookies and soda bread!

So put on your green and your dancing feet and come be Irish for the night!

Fiddlers Crossing is at 206 East F Street at Robinson Street, in Downtown Tehachapi. Tickets may be purchased online at, or at Mountain Music, Tehachapi Treasure Trove, Tehachapi Furniture in Old Town, and Lucky's Barbershop. They may also be reserved by calling (661) 823-9994.
