ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
From Walnut Creek, California, the Mt Diablo String Band performs energetic old-time music, featuring inspired fiddle tunes and vocal numbers. The band has been performing periodically for the last few years in Northern California.

Bandleader Carl Pagter sings and plays clawhammer banjo. Carl is a retired attorney from Walnut Creek, CA. He is a founder of the California Bluegrass Association and one of its prestigious appointed “Lifetime Members”. Carl has also played banjo with world famous recording and touring group “Country Ham” for more than 30 years. He is a member of the Board of Trustees of the International Bluegrass Music Museum in Owensboro, KY, and a co-promoter of the Golden Old-Time Music Festival in Yreka, CA.

Harry Liedstrand is featured on fiddle and vocals. Harry, who has been playing fiddle since age 4, learned from his father (who is still playing in his 90’s). Harry played with Kenny Hall as a member of the Sweets Mill String Band starting in the late 1960’s, and was a part of the Portable Folk Festival in the early 1970’s, which toured nationally. Harry visited Tommy Jarrell and Burl Hammons in 1973. An elementary school teacher, he has lived in Lafayette, CA for more than 20 years.

Corbin Pagter. Carl’s son plays mandolin and sings with Mt. Diablo. He is also proficient on guitar and has been playing old-time fiddle for the past several years. Corbin is a professional photographer and a surfing enthusiast, and hails from Berkeley, CA.

Harry’s wife of 25+ years Cindy Liedstrand is the Diablo’s guitarist. She works at John Muir Hospital in Walnut Creek and has played guitar since early adulthood, and also plays old-time banjo. She and Harry are the parents of two talented children – daughter Farrin, who plays fiddle, and son Terrell, who plays mandolin.

Rounding out the group is Matt Dudman on string bass. Matt runs PleasantValleyMusic.com, selling instruments and accessories, teaching lessons and engineering its recording studio. Well known in Northern California music circles, Matt re-birthed Carolina Special as mandolin player and tenor singer, and made 3 well received recordings with Jake Quesenberry as the “MacRae Brothers.” He currently also plays mandolin with RoseBud Blue and his own band Matt and George and Their Pleasant Valley Boys.
