Stemwinder Band!

The Bonnie Kate Theater is proud to present the “Stemwinder Band” Performing traditional Bluegrass / Folk Music – don’t miss this fantastic group.

Take a musical journey with this new quartet across time and musical boundaries.

Bluegrass to folk and then some.

From Norman Blake and Tony Rice to Tom Paxton, & the Carter Family with stops

along the way to visit the Eagles, the Byrds, Sam Bush, Dan Fogelberg,

Richard Thompson, Michael Martin Murphy, and even the Rolling Stones.

Each of the four band members brings their own personal influences to the mix

creating an interesting and diverse listening experience.


Shannon Morton, a native Elizabethtonian, holds down the guitar duties with his smooth,

laid-back playing style and adds his voice to both lead and harmony vocals.

Dennis Ellis, also from Elizabethton, does the Mandolin chores and sings baritone.

If enough of his “fans” are in the room may be persuaded to sing a lead vocal as well!

Pam Minke lives in Jonesborough and when not working with her horse “children”

“Red Molly” & “Bailey” keeps the band in line with her rock-solid, inventive bass playing

while adding her voice to the harmony mix.

Bob Minke {Pam’s husband and lifelong partner in music} plays banjo, and guitar and sings

both lead and harmony vocals to complete the quartet.


What started out as four new friends getting together to jam occasionally has become

four really good friends getting together to play music for their family, friends, and fans

whenever and wherever they get the chance.
