– Cribstone Bridge Cribstone Bridge plays original, traditional and progressive bluegrass music with honesty and sincerity. Singer and songwriter Ted DeMille, formerly with the well-respected Maine band North Star, teamed up with bassist Kelly Burke and dobro player Dan Burke in the fall of 2007. Mandolin and guitarist Taylor Smith and banjo player Keith Hillyard signed on in 2010. The chemistry worked and the five-piece band has developed a wide range of material drawn from Ted’s original songs, tunes from first generation bluegrass icons and interesting blues and folk cover songs: micro-brewed hand-crafted material drawn from Ted’s wide range of original songs.
The Cribstone Bridge sound features a solid rhythmic punch anchored by Kelly’s stand up bass and complemented by innovative soloing by Dan, Taylor and Keith. In a relatively short time, Ted and Taylor have achieved a richly textured vocal sound that has been praised by critics and fans alike. Cribstone Bridge puts their collective shoulder to the wheel to serve the song.
