The latest entry in the Craig Concert Association series is a performance by the musical group Goldwing Express, which will begin at 7 p.m. Saturday at the Moffat County High School auditorium.

Goldwing Express is a family act that blends the genres of gospel, country and bluegrass, as well as a little bit of comedy. The group consists of Bob Baldridge and sons Paul, Steven and Shawn, originally from Okmulgee, Okla., and currently headquartered in Branson, Mo.

Bob, the group’s lead singer and mandolinist, has been playing music since the 1970s before forming a band with his sons. Paul, Steven and Shawn play the guitar, banjo and upright bass, respectively, while singing a full range of harmonies.

Among the songs they have played for audiences are well-known “Foggy Mountain Breakdown,” “Country Roads,” “My Old Kentucky Home” and “Cool Water.”

Steven, who also is the group’s manager, said their performance offers something to entertain everybody.

“My dad does a lot of comedian-style stories and we like to interact with the crowd and get them involved,” he said.

The boys also dedicate part of the show to their Native American roots on their mother’s side by donning authentic Creek headdresses. This segment also includes music related to their heritage.

“People really seem to like that,” Steven said.

Tickets to Goldwing Express at the door are $20 for adults and $10 for students who are not members of the Craig Concert Association.
