Howdy! My Name is Trae Buckner and first and foremost I am a husband and a dad. I am also a professional musician, singer/songwriter, producer, recording engineer and I also teach guitar, clawhammer banjo and bass in the Morgantown area. I truly love making music and I am currently touring with the band The Hillbilly Gypsies - http://www.thehillbillygypsies.com/ - From Morgantown West Virginia. I play several musical instruments and many styles of music but professionally I mostly play Acoustic Guitar, Clawhammer style Banjo & Upright Bass and I sing lead and harmony vocals with the band. The band and I proudly endorse Black Diamond Strings, Super Sensitive Strings, National Picks, Schertler Transducers and I also personally play and endorse Andrew White Guitars, Nechville Banjos & G7th Capo Company. Thanks to all of these wonderful companies for believing in us. Thanks to them also for their top notch quality products and craftsmanship AND thanks for all that these fine companies do to help us out. We sure do appreciate their support and sponsorship. It means the world!
