Smith Brothers Bluegrass Band

Location: R.A. Fountain

From our promo for this concert;

The Smith Brothers Bluegrass Band from Rocky Mount debuts its show in Fountain on Saturday night. The three Smith brothers, Troy on guitar, Shelton on Dobro, and Grady on banjo, are joined by Gerald Flowers of Wilson on bass, Ricky Privett of Nashville on mandolin, and Frank Davis of Sharpsburg on guitar.

The Smiths grew up on a farm in Nash County, where Troy first started picking and singing bluegrass over 40 years ago. “Shelton and Grady started out on rock and roll,” he said, “but they finally realized what real music was.”

The Smith Brothers perform live regularly on Rocky Mount televsion station WHIG 17. “You can expect to hear bluegrass classics played in the traditional style,” said Troy Smith. “We love Doyle Lawson and Quicksilver, and Flatt and Scruggs, and Bill Monroe.”
