Tommy Brown cut his teeth on classic, traditional bluegrass. A third generation musician, Tommy began pickin’ the five-string banjo at the age of six. His powerful banjo style garnered him both the Kentucky State and Tennessee State Banjo Championships. His impressive pickin’ style and soulful vocals embrace his passion for the mountain-style music he performs today.
The County Line Grass was formed in 1991 with a group of friends who just happened to live across the county line, thus the name, Tommy Brown & the County Line Grass. These days the band is more of a family affair with Tommy’s children and close friends joining him. Son Jereme plays lead guitar and lends his poignant lead, tenor and baritone vocals to the group. With an instrument twice her size, daughter Rachel skillfully provides a solid, yet spirited rhythm on acoustic bass. Wayne Fyffe rounds out the group on fiddle. His energetic fiddle will make you get up and dance and his emotional back-up work provides the perfect complement to the groups moving ballads.
Tommy Brown and the County Line Grass is signed with Randm Records and has released their latest album, Leaving This Town.
Pleasing audiences around the nation while still holding true to their beloved traditional, mountain-style bluegrass, you don’t want to miss this entertaining group!
