As the guitar player and a vocalist in the seminal family band, Cherryholmes and now, Sideline, Skip Cherryholmes’ story is one of bootstrap beginnings and a fast rise to the top. Although now disbanded, Cherryholmes blazed a trail for young bluegrass artists, and their legacy remains an important one. In Part 1 of a two-part conversation with Daniel Mullins, Skip talks about the emergence of his family’s band and talks about the spiritual path that led them to make music together. Hear how this band borrowed from the East Coast bluegrass tradition, combined it with West Coast musical instincts, and created a one-of-a-kind sound in bluegrass that is still imitated today.
