Tar River Boys

Location: R.A. Fountain

Local bluegrass’s Tar River Boys stepped in to fill this date when Buckler was unable to make it to Fountain after being involved in an accident near Asheville.

Tar River Boys have been playing in one lineup or another since the early 1970s. They jam weekly in Tarboro and graciously agreed to fill in this spot.

Band members included Peter Temple, guitar, vocals; Alan “Junior” Pierce, guitar, vocals; Willie Nelms, bass, vocals; Buddy Zincone, banjo, dobro; Frances Smyth, fiddle; and Roger Sauerborn, mandolin, vocals.
