~ Then ~
~ Now ~
I've been pickin' and grinnin' since I was 7 yrs old. I began with the guitar and at age ten decided to tackle the banjo, and many years later the banjo is "still" my instrument of choice. I also play the bass, dobro and on rare occasion the mando. :)
I played professionally for 32 years with several bands, some of which include The Hotfoot Quartet, The Russell Brothers, Kentucky Grass, Southland Express and the Butler Brothers, and (are you ready?) The Wiernot Bros, Dave Evans and River Bend, The Boys From Indiana, The Woods Brothers, Southern Comfort, Tackett Brothers, and last listed, but certainly NOT least, Jimmy Martin and the Sunny Mountain Boys.
If there is a particular song you would like added, please leave your request in the guestbook and I will do my best to get it for you. Thank you.
