Additional band members to be announced

Renowned folk singer, writer, teacher, recording artist and first-rate fingerstyle guitarist Happy Traum began playing guitar and 5-string banjo as a teenager, and was an important participant in the legendary Greenwich Village folk scene of the 1950s and ‘60s. He was a student of blues guitar legend Brownie McGhee, a major influence on his picking style.

Happy has played in concerts, clubs and festivals throughout the U.S., Canada, Europe, Australia and Japan, both solo and with his late brother, Artie Traum, with whom he performed for more than 40 years. Their performances at the 1968 and 1969 Newport Folk Festivals helped to gain them an avid following and a contract with famed manager Albert Grossman.

Dobro and lap steel guitarist Cindy Cashdollar is a five-time Grammy recipient. A Woodstock native, she earned her wings playing with local artists such as John Herald, Paul Butterfield, Levon Helm, Rick Danko and Happy & Artie Traum. After touring for nine years with the premier Western swing band, Asleep at the Wheel, she has become the “go-to” guest musician for some of the top artists of our time, including Bob Dylan, Van Morrison, Lyle Lovett, Willie Nelson, Rory Block, Rod Stewart, Amy Helm and many more. She was the first woman to be inducted into the Texas Steel Guitar Hall of Fame in 2011; was inducted into The Texas Music Hall of Fame in 2012; and was nominated as Instrumentalist of the Year by the Americana Music Association.

Multi-instrumentalist David Mansfield is the son of classical musicians and was formally trained as a violinist. At the age of 18, he joined Bob Dylan’s band, recording three albums and touring with the “Rolling Thunder Revue.” In 1976 David was signed to Arista and released three albums (two of which he co-produced with T-Bone Burnett and Steven Soles) as a member of the critically acclaimed “Alpha Band.” David is an award-winning film and television composer, having worked with such luminaries as Oliver Stone, Michael Cimino, Walter Hill, Robert Duvall and many others.

Philadelphia-raised singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, Zach Djanikian, has been a Woodstock resident and a popular performer for several years. He started his career with the Philly-based The Brakes, and now regularly records and tours, nationally and internationally, as an important member of the bands backing Amos Lee, Rachel Yamagata, Amy Helm, and several others. Zach plays guitar, bass, saxophone, mandolin, and more
