The Putah Creek Crawdads are an acoustic vocal and string band playing folk, Americana, gospel and bluegrass music.
The Crawdads have been playing around Yolo County and beyond for almost 50 years. Members reside in Davis, Woodland, Knights Landing, Winters and now Arbuckle.
A few years ago, at the California Bluegrass Association’s annual music camp, the Crawdads found a musical mentor and friend in Bluegrass musician Keith Little (Peter Rowan Bluegrass Band, David Grisman Bluegrass Experience and Keith Little and the LittleBand). Keith has helped the group grow musically over the last several years. Keith is the producer and editor of “Going Back” and our forthcoming CD, and he arranged for the technical assistance of bluegrass guitarist/sound engineer Jim Nunnally (John Reischman and the Jaybirds, David Grisman Bluegrass Experience and several duos) at Jim’s Music Hill Recording Studio in Crockett, CA.
The Putah Creek Crawdads continue to play at local events including the Davis and Woodland Farmers Markets, various non-profit benefit events and private events as well as for various senior living facilities in Yolo County.
