I met Tom Isaacs (banjo) and John Bryan (guitar) at a bluegrass jam in Boone, NC many years ago. Both gents grew up in Watauga County with music in their family. I learned a lot from them as we jammed every Tuesday night. Here they are playing with Larry Efaw (mandolin) as the Bluegrass Mountaineers. This was at Dr. Ralph Stanley's Hills of Home Festival 2014 on top of Smith Ridge in the middle of the Clinch Mountains. It's a one lane road all the way to the top. The old stage you see at the beginning of the video is the original stage where so many masters of bluegrass performed. They call it "Hollow of Legends." A new stage was built up the hill a ways.
