We are 5 working class guys from North Carolina. Great music is our passion and Bluegrass is our love. The band started in Cherryville North Carolina, the hometown of its three founding members Lee Shuford and Audie and Zane McGinnis. The three came together at historic picking sessions at the home of Jack Bingham. Soon they were doing what many new groups do, playing locally and building a fan following. In 2014 the current lineup was fully formed with the additions of Ty Gilpin on mandolin and vocals, and Tim Gardner on fiddle and vocals. With a repertoire of new, original bluegrass music, traditional bluegrass numbers and creative covers, we open our band to an even wider audience and bring a passionate energy to the stage. Our 2013 release, Simple Little Town, with its live feel and mostly original songs also showcases the band’s ability to keep one foot in the past and one pointed towards the future. The album offers something for everyone with hardcore Grass numbers, a rock ‘n roll cover, and original songs. We have a motto…. “We play Working Class Bluegrass”. The philosophy here is that Bluegrass is for the people and by the people. It’s participatory music and community music. It’s real music that anyone can relate to with its themes of life, love, work, family and American culture.
