If you are into the Americana/roots music scene, you probably know David and Valerie Mayfield’s kids. Son David Ray Mayfield leads The David Mayfield Parade. Daughter Jessica Lea Mayfield has 4 acclaimed albums under the belt at age 23. If you’re a little deeper into their music, you probably know that both of the Kent-based siblings began their professional music careers playing with their parents in a touring bluegrass band called One Way Rider they also toured and lived in a old touring bus once belonging to “Bill Monroe” a 1956 flex, known as (The Bluegrass Breakdown) The parents now perform as a duet, proudly billing themselves as “The Parents of David Ray Mayfield of The David Mayfield Parade & Jessica Lea Mayfield.” Those who like their kids’ music should be curious to hear their parents and see where all that talent came from.
