Cobblestone Crossing has been performing for about ten years. Their repertoire includes mostly American nostalgic folk, with a light touch of bluegrass, country, Irish and even an up tempo spiritual or two. You’ll hear music from such icon folk groups as The Kingston Trio, Peter, Paul & Mary, Bill Staines, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, John Denver, The New Chrsity Minstrels, Woody Guthrie, Gordon Lightfoot, The Limeliters, The Irish Rovers, and The Weavers.
Darrell Douglas Varley is the arranger, bass-baritone, banjo, guitar, fiddle & mandolin player of the group. Darrell is a graduate from Eastman School of Music in Rochester. After over 30 years as a radio air personality, Darrell makes the audience feel like “part of the show”.
Brian Shendel picked up playing the bass about fourteen years ago not having played it since college. He sings baritone on occasion but claims that his instrumental performance is more important to the group. Brian is the cheerleader and puts a positive spin on every so so occasion, always has a great one liner and keeps Darrell in line.
Janet L. Varley is an accomplished pianist with ragtime influence. Janet started learning the mandolin in 95 after purchasing a Gibson at an auction. She now doubles on tenor guitar and sings alto. She is also a fan of Tom Leher…That attitude comes in handy.
John Tobias joined Cobblestone Crossing summer of 2010. His has been active in church music in the Triple Cities area for over 20 years as Folk Group, Childrens' Choir/Contemporary Ensemble director at his church. John's background is in Folk/Classic Rock/Christian music. He sings tenor and plays guitar.
With great music, humorous banter, and sing along songs, an evening with Cobblestone Crossing is always a fun and exciting performance that keeps audiences calling for more.
