Mountain Drive

From 2007 to 2010 Rick played with the Santa Cruz based bluegrass band Mountain Drive. Mountain Drive was a classic quartet comprised of Rick Ednie (guitar),  Jered Chaney (banjo), Bradley Ritcher (mandolin) and Mike Baroni (bass). Known for picking fast and hard, and belting out strong lead vocals accompanied by two and three-part harmonies in the traditional style, Mountain Drive enjoyed a brief (and some say too short) run as one of the premiere Bluegrass bands in the Bay Area.
