Brian Vollmer

In cart Not available Out of stock

Brian Vollmer grew up immersed in the musical culture of Appalachia. It was just a way of life... A patron and soon-to-be picker at bluegrass festivals and fiddler's conventions since before he can remember, he became enamored with the soul of traditional mountain music. Starting out on 5-string bluegrass banjo at parties and festivals at a young age, He soon made his way to clawhammer banjo, and then old time fiddle, particularly developing a keen ear for the more acrid sounds of backwoods country music. The result of of this journey, Old Time Music Party, is a statement of Brian's musical philosophy; playing the songs and tunes he loves with his friends, all live, no overdubs. This album is a tribute to anyone who has caroused until the break of dawn.
