We were formed in 2003 to play the music for "Tom Dooley, A Wilkes County Legend" which is shown by The Wilkes Playmakers every year during the month of July. We have five (5) CD's recorded and are staying very busy playing. We no longer do the music for "Tom Dooley: A Wilkes County Legend" and are doing more festivals and other gig's in North Carolina, Virginia, and Tennessee.

Band Members:
Herb Key - guitar and lead vocals. Herb also plays bass with Wayne Henderson and works in Wayne's shop as a luthier. Jim Lloyd - banjo & vocals. Jim is a very talented musician and teaches music. He has won many awards over the years. Drake Walsh - fiddle & mandolin. Drake plays a lot of different instruments. He is the son of "Dock" Walsh who played with the original "Carolina Tar Heels" and recorded for RCA and Columbia in the 20's & 30's. Nicole Vidrine - Lead vocals. Nicole is a very good singer and fits in well with the band. She also teaches "Kindermusik" which is for children 0 to 7 years of age. Bill Williams - Bass and harmony vocals. Bill plays both acoustic (doghouse) and electric bass. He also plays autoharp. Bill is the webmaster for our web site and takes care of bookings and finances for the band.
