C.B. SMITH & THE LUCKY DEVILS perform at arts centers, music clubs, libraries and events in the Hudson Valley, NYC and Boston. Their performances are sometimes augmented with instrumental and songwriting workshops. The band features fiddle phenom MEGAN GUGLIOTTA, Berklee-trained bassist BILL STROHM and mandolinist BRENDAN DONOVAN. Their repertoire includes a unique mix of originals, bluegrass classics (like the Bill Monroe Centennial set that was the centerpiece of their 2011 season), "grassed up" versions of American Songbook standards, and surprises like the occasional Tom Petty, Stephen Foster, Richard Thompson, Neil Young or Rolling Stones song.
MEGAN GUGLIOTTA holds Masters Degrees in Music Education and Violin Performance from the University of South Carolina. She performs with the Northern Dutchess Symphony Orchestra and other ensembles, and is the founding director of the school orchestra program at Middletown High School in Middletown, NY. BILL STROHM studied trumpet at the Berklee College of Music before switching to bass. He also performs with orchestras, rock and jazz groups and big bands. Mandolinist BRENDAN DONOVAN completes the lineup with a level of musicianship that belles his youthful demeanor.
