Alternate Route is a dynamic acoustic band that brings fresh new sounds to traditional music, with an edgy mix of bluegrass, newgrass, classic country and more. While they sometimes branch off from the traditional path, they always connect back up with the “routes” of the music. The band is Kara Caudill (Guitar & Vocals), Marcus Caudill (Mandolin & Vocals), Dave Werden (Dobro, Mandolin & Vocals) and Zoe Werden (Bass & Vocals). These four come from different musical backgrounds and influences, but when they get together they always find common ground. Alternate Route delivers a blend of old-time and traditional tunes with powerful three-part vocals, cleverly arranged instrumentals, progressive originals and old favorites from folk and country, all wrapped around a lively stage show. Don’t go down the wrong road, follow the Alternate Route. You ears will thank you!
