Goldwing Express, a family variety show featuring the musical talents of three brothers as they run through bluegrass, country, gospel and even a touch of comedy, is coming to the DesertView Performing Arts Center at SaddleBrooke this Saturday, Feb. 13.
Concerts are set for 4 and 7:30 p.m. Advanced tickets are $25. Seating is limited. Tickets are on sale now at the Mountain View Clubhouse in SaddleBrooke, or http://www.dvpac.net. There is a $3.25 processing fee online. For information call 520 825-2818. All ticket sales are final.
Goldwing Express performs in a benefit concert for The SaddleBrooke Theatre Guild and Tucson's own Desert Bluegrass Association.
Goldwing Express is three Native American brothers — Shawn, Steven and Paul — onstage with their father, Bob Baldridge. They play unique melodies of the five-string banjo, mandolin, guitar, dobro and upright bass.
Goldwing Express has recorded more than 10 CDs of classic country, bluegrass and gospel music. Father Bob provides the onstage humor.
The Desert Bluegrass Association was formed in Tucson in 1995 to promote, preserve and perpetuate traditional bluegrass music in Greater Tucson and Southern Arizona. The DBA is an all-volunteer, non-profit organization consisting of local, national and international visitors. It depends on contributions from the citizens of Tucson and friends like Cherryholmes in order to continue to provide bluegrass music throughout the Old Pueblo. For more information about DBA activities and jams, see http://www.desertbluegrass.org.
The Saddlebrooke Theater Guild supports the DesertView Performing Arts Center to develop and implement programs that enable the theater to bring in outside performances of interest and importance while continuing to give the residents a venue for expressing their creative and performance interests.
