From Hanaleiep.com: “David Ferretta was a Denver Music Icon, first working with Harry Tuft at the Denver Folklore Center and later opening his own vintage music store, Ferretta Music Service on south Broadway in Denver. David also owned “The Global Village” a coffee house in Denver that presented live Bluegrass music. David joined with EP Davis, Clarke Wright, Marc Conley and Bob Wire to form The Sunday River Bluegrass Show, recording an LP record album for Biscuit City Records in Denver tilted “You Can Dress Them Up, But You Can’t Take ‘Em Out”.
Sunday River performed at the earliest Bluegrass festivals in Colorado, and was a featured opening act for Colorado bands, Michael Martin Murphy, The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Doug Kershaw, Chuck Pyle, Katy Moffit and many other Colorado artists and well as national acts like Bill Monroe, Lester Flatt, Jim and Jessie, Jimmy Martin, and Ralph Stanley. Sunday River traveled extensively and performed twice at the famed Red Rock Amphitheater for Barry Fay’s “Colorado Nights”. David passed away in 1996.”
