Dalton City Limits

Dalton City Limits is an association of talented musicians based in the area surrounding the Walnut Valley and Winfield, Kansas. Formed in 2015, DCL has meticulously crafted and honed their sound that has evolved from many diverse influences such as classical, bluegrass, swing, rock and blues. You may have seen them jamming in the wee hours of the morning or caught one of their high powered sets on Stage 5, City of Winfield Bluegrass Crawl, Patton’s Picking Parlor or College Hill Coffee just to name a few.

Cast of characters include: Larry Guthrie – Guitar, Rick Palsmeier – Fiddle, Wes Guthrie – Dobro, Darrel Wassinger – Bass, Robert Bagot – Banjo. Several members of the band have grown up around the Pecan Grove and served as unofficial ambassadors of the Walnut Valley Festival since the mid 70’s, sharing tunes, learning from and teaching others how to play and enjoy music as a livlehood.
