This week we are super honored and excited to bring you the one and only Benny ‘Burle’ Galloway! When Yonder Mountain String Band arrived in Colorado from Illinois, trying to make its name in the bluegrass world, they needed a friend who knew the ropes. Benny Galloway was their man. Galloway had been a part of the Colorado acoustic-music scene since moving here from the New Orleans area in the mid-’70s. Galloway had the wealth of experiences and contacts that Yonder Mountain was short on. A singer, songwriter and guitarist who also dabbled in dobro, bass and piano, Galloway had led his own bands, played bass in the Front Range group Fret Knot, jammed with the members of Leftover Salmon and Runaway Truck Ramp. This is the guy who the bands would come to after tour, lick their wounds, have some BBQ, and get centered again.
We spent the day with Burle talking about everything from Yonder’s early days, living the Cowboy life, existing in the parenthesis, seeing Northwest String Summit grow into what it is today, seeing music as form and not sound, and oh…. so much more!
