Consummate crowd-pleaser, Cynthia brings a unique sound to Vintage Fare performances.  With a voice that can emulate Joan Baez, Linda Ronstadt, Stevie Nicks and her own style, Cynthia often brings audiences to tears.

Chuck Cole

Chuck Cole

Vocals plus any instrument that has strings

We stole (well, borrowed) Chuck from the New Christie Minstrels.

Chucks’ striking mandolin and sweet Dobro lend a one-of-a-kind sound to Vintage Fare.

Wes Peterson

Wes Peterson

Sound Engineering, a little harmonica

The least of our musicians, Wes joined Vintage Fare when nobody else would read the manual for the band’s mixer.  He was “adopted” when Dave heard Wes’s harmonica & a former member said “Jeez! You sound just like Bob Dylan.”
