ABOUT THE BLUEGRASS SWEETHEARTS
If you are into the Americana/roots music scene, you probably know David and Valerie Mayfield’s kids. Son David Ray Mayfield leads The David Mayfield Parade. Daughter Jessica Lea Mayfield has 4 acclaimed albums under the belt at age 23. If you’re a little deeper into their music, you probably know that both of the Kent-based siblings began their professional music careers playing with their parents in a touring bluegrass band called One Way Rider they also toured and lived in a old touring bus once belonging to “Bill Monroe” a 1956 flex, known as (The Bluegrass Breakdown) The parents now perform as a duet, proudly billing themselves as “The Parents of David Ray Mayfield of The David Mayfield Parade & Jessica Lea Mayfield.” Those who like their kids’ music should be curious to hear their parents and see where all that talent came from. Now they have been names “The Bluegrass Sweethearts” which is a perfect name for them, they still like to mix some classic country into their act also…
Valerie asked David about “what do they mean about our comical banter hon?” David replied “us hon, they way we talk to each other, and Valerie says, ” Oh you mean they think it is a act?” The way David and Valerie are on stage is a true please to watch… they are truly being themselves… I guess if you have been married a 136 years and husband David says, you can see the sweetheart comedy act of a true talented married couple…
