More about the Bad Actors.
The Bad Actors are an acoustic duo based in the Central Valley of California. Steeped in the tradition of Bluegrass, Doug Bremseth and Bruce Honeyman bring tight harmonies and precise guitar picking to a wide diversity of music from Dylan, The Byrds, and The Beatles to the Louvin Brothers and Bill Monroe. Bremseth polished his chops in North Carolina when, in 1993, he toured as banjoist for Flying Fish recording artists, the Shady Grove Band. The group performed concerts throughout the Carolinas, including the world-renowned Merle Watson Festival and The Lincoln Center in New York City. During his fifteen years in North Carolina, Doug worked with some great players, including Tony Williamson, Jim Mills, and Jack Lawrence. He also performed professionally with his own group, Lonesome Moon, at festivals in North Carolina and Virginia. Honeyman began his musical journey forty year ago playing guitar with the award-winning Kansas based Bluegrass group, Peggy and the Emerald City Boys. Since moving to Fresno in 1976, Bruce has continued to be active in the acoustic music scene. He has played Bluegrass with the much-loved Drought Tolerant Band, the Old-Time Gospelaires, and, more recently, the Bad Actors. He has rounded out his musical skills by playing mandolin, guitar, and harmonica in three different bands specializing in Irish, Old-Time, and Cajun music: the Fresneaux Ramblers, Roscanna, and Blind Dog.
