About the event
Crying Uncle Bluegrass (CUBG), widely recognized as one of the most exciting young bands in acoustic music, plays a unique mix of Bluegrass, Dawg, Jazz and modern originals. Brothers Miles and Teo Quale are joined by bassist Andrew Osborn and guitarist Ian Ly, outstanding young musicians of the vibrant California bluegrass scene. Nominated for the 2023 International Bluegrass Music Association’s Band Momentum Award and winners of the 2018 Pickin’ in the Pines Band Contest in Flagstaff AZ, CUBG is making waves in the world of bluegrass and acoustic music.
Based in Northern California, Crying Uncle Bluegrass has opened for prestigious bands, including Marty Stuart and his Fabulous Superlatives and David Grisman Bluegrass Experience. The band has played at venues such as IBMA’s World of Bluegrass Festival, CBA’s Father's Day Bluegrass Festival, Strawberry Music Festival, SF’s Hardly Strictly Bluegrass, Delfest, and Grey Fox Bluegrass Festival. Internationally, the band toured in Japan in 2023 and performed at Bluegrass in La Roche, France in 2022; in 2019, they toured throughout Finland, culminating at Kaustinen Folk Music Festival. In 2018, the band was featured on a TEDTalk with Nashville-based singer/songwriter Phoebe Hunt. Miles was a proud recipient of the Whippoorwill Arts Fellowship in 2022.
The band released their eponymous album, Crying Uncle, in 2018. And in 2020, they released their sophomore album, Monroe Bridge. Monroe Bridge, which features guest artists, fiddler Chad Manning and mandolinist Sharon Gilchrist and produced by banjoist Keith Little. In 2021, the bluegrass band came out with an EP of mostly self-written tunes, Till I Dance Again with You, inspired by a year of “isolating” during the pandemic. Most recently (2022), they released their newest album, The Thing of Dreams, which highlights their originals.
