Coffey and Company at Gayville Hall Saturday The Sioux Falls-based bluegrass band Coffey and Company will appear in concert at 8 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 25, at Gayville Hall in Gayville. Gayville Hall emcee John McNeill will open the show.
Sam Coffey leads the family band which includes his 16-year-old son Dalton, his wife Tammy on vocals, and her brother and sister Steven Barnhart and Kay Oldfather-Daigle.
Coffey has played dobro and banjo professionally for 30 years backing stars like Kitty Wells, Louise Mandrell, and Johnny Russell, among many others, at Branson, MO, theatres and on tour. He is the featured guest at this year's "Acoustic Christmas" concerts. He and Barnhart, who handles bass in the group and sings, make custom stringed instruments when not playing.
Singer Kay Oldfather-Daigle performed at the Dogpatch theme park in Arkansas and at Silver Dollar City near Branson. She toured for two years with a national deaf theatre production out of Washington, DC, before Gordy Pratt first brought her to the Black Hills in the early 1990s to star in Deadwood musical revues, which she did for four years.
Teenage Dalton has been playing guitar since age six and is known as a prodigy on dobro and guitar. The group is working on its second CD.
Gayville Hall is located at 502 Washington Street in Gayville. Tickets are $10 at the door or $12.50 for a reserved seat. Call (605)-267-2859.
