The Barns of Wolf Trap - Bandhouse Tribute to Randy Newman



Cravin' Dogs began as a "gonzo-folk" trio in 1986. Founding members Caldwell Gray (guitar/vocals), Lisa Venable Gray (vocals) and Tom Helf (drums) crafted a sparse brand of rock and roll that used acoustic guitar, drums and harmony-driven vocals to create a unique blend of folk, rock, '80s new wave and bluegrass. Cravin' Dogs has since evolved into an all-original, eclectic, rootsy, rock/pop-outfit that has played over 1000 shows and released nine full-length albums, one EP and two compilation retrospectives.  Cravin’ Dogs is: Todd Baker - Violin, John Penovich - Electric Guitar & Vocals, Barry Warsaw - Bass & Vocals, Tom Helf - Drums & Vocals, Caldwell Gray - Acoustic Guitar, Piano, Vocals.
