With an average age less than 15 years old, 35 Years of Trouble is one of the youngest bands performing traditional and contemporary bluegrass and gospel songs in Northern California.  All four members are veterans of the “Kids on Bluegrass” program at the annual Grass Valley bluegrass festival, as well as the kids program at the Good Old Fashioned bluegrass festival.  In fact, it was while jamming together at the GOF festival a few years back that the kids determined that their collective ages added up to 35 years.  Although they’re a few years older now, the name “35 Years of Trouble” stuck, as they started playing regularly at street fairs and farmer’s markets.   The band features solid instrumental work and strong vocal trios.  They have performed at the Good Old Fashioned Bluegrass Festival, CBA Father’s Day Festival - Vern’s Stage, the Freight & Salvage, and various street fairs and private events.
