Bobby Miller

Born in Georgia in the sixties, you can imagine the type of psychedelic radio pop that he was exposed to. After moving to Matthews, NC in 1974, he was exposed to his first note of Bluegrass music. Some how ending up landing in a suburban home next door to Country Music legend and Grand Old Opry Host George Hamilton IV. “I’d stand on my back porch way past my bedtime and listen to the sounds of banjo and fiddle.” He, of course, was into David Bowie and The Doors and such. Later in life, after hearing Old and In The Way, all that changed. He took right to it and before he knew it, he was on stage and sharing his music with as many friends as possible.

Walter Forbes

I’ve had an incredible life! Musically I played with the “Third Marine Division Poor Boys Hillbilly Band” in 1957 & 58, The “Lonesome Travelers” with Norman Blake and Bob Johnson 1959-1967, I was a regular guest on the Grand Ol Opry from 1961 to 1973, an RCA recording artist 1961-62, and I was the lead human in the Walt Disney for TV Movie “The Nashville Coyote” (the coyote got top billing and roast beef for lunch). I was blessed with my fifty year friendship with Jack “Cowboy” Clement who kept my professional musical interest alive even while I was running a textile business in Chattanooga.
