About Us

How It Started

We're just a group of friends that kept getting together simply to enjoy jamming and playing bluegrass music.  We had so much fun, we decided to share with others.  The result is Southern Tradition Bluegrass.  We hope to see you soon and enjoy some good, old-fashioned bluegrass music ...and some not-so-old-fashioned bluegrass ... together.
