We love Old Time Music and play in a band when possible. Our Fiddler is an Arkansas Champion and received the first J. Mulkey Kent Award given for authentic ozark fiddle playing. His name is...ready... Fiddlin Banjo Billy Mathews! Now that is quite a title. Billy was one of the few American Banjo makers back in the late 1970's and 1980's, he also plays the banjo in the old style. He began fiddling when a neighbor told him he could have a fiddle, if he learned to play a tune. So Billy made up a tune and came back to his neighbors, played the tune and was awarded his first fiddle. That was some 40 plus years ago. Today Billy mostly plays the fiddle and my husband plays guitar and I get to be Banjo Billy's Banjo player! We have a really great time hope you can catch a show sometime. Our Schedule is located on facebook and can also be found on Bily's website.
