"My parents are both professional musicians and I grew up listening to them play classical music and opera. I like all types of different music including bluegrass, Irish music, old-time, jazz, blues, rock, folk, reggae, music from different parts of the world and other styles as well. I am influenced by the music I grew up with , the music I listen to, the teachers I have had, and the friends I have played with.I like to listen to college radio stations because I am exposed to different types of music I have not heard before."
Upright and Breathin featuring Billy Constable
It all began in a secret, late night downtown basement. Many talented, well known pickers from all over the region have jammed with the boys in that room. After a while, the fellas realized they were on to something...they found they were having so much fun together that it would be a shame not to bring it out of the basement and out to the area's music lovers. Steeped in Old Time Mountain Music and “traditional” bluegrass they aren’t afraid to go out on a limb and show some of their rock-n-roll roots or jazz influences."
