Im 34, and I build banjos, and play in The Giles Mountain String Band. I am also the founder of The Henry Reed Memorial Fiddlers Convention. I play fiddle in the style of Henry Reed. Henry Reeds son "Dean Reed" is our guitar player, and we all take pride in keeping our music going, the way the Reeds used to play it. My banjo style is similar to Oscar Wright, and my great uncle Cecil Thompson. I also play old time finger style, and some minstrel style. My wife Angie plays the bass and keeps us all together. www.gilesmountainstringband.com
