Sawmill Ridge

Welcome our new member to the Mill 

Hi everyone,

Sawmill Ridge would like to introduce you to the newest lead Guitar and lead vocal member....Dan Phelps.


We sure are happy to have him on the team, his Tony Rice Style playing is a huge addition to the Sawmill and his vocals come straight from that high lonesome traditional sound that can't be taught. His family is steep in the Traditional Bluegrass scene, grandpa played Dobro for Bill Monroe, and Jimmy Martin., his father and brother are well known in the bluegrass community. Make sure to give him a big Sawmill welcome!


Sorry to all you Cbus fans and friends but we have had to cancel the Brynes Pub Show this Friday Oct 5th, we apologize to Patrick and his staff for any inconvenience this has caused but hope in the future we can get back here.

Let me tell ya we had a blast, we made some new friends and hope to get back here real soon. The staff made us feel right at home and Jeremy did a great job on the sound board. If you get a chance to go a listen to some live music here you will be a repeat customer, the food, service, and atmosphere are fantastic.
