The Saloon Pilots are a study in such commitment. The five-piece outfit consists of fiddler Lesley Kline, guitarist and mandolin virtuoso Kilin Reece and banjo player Paul Sato. Drummer Mike Carroll and bassist Alex Morrison round out a rock solid rhythm section that provides a solid textural counterpoint to the dizzying finger picking and fiddle lines offered by the stringed instruments. And while the musicianship of the individual members of the band is prodigious in itself, the vocal arrangements of the Saloon Pilots ground the band in its milieu.
