My parents gave me my first banjo when I was 10 years old. I grew up performing in a local band with my father (The Rocky River Boys) and gained other experience around my region with L.W. Lambert and A.L. Wood. My first professional job came in 1970 with Charlie Moore (playing fiddle). By the mid-70's, I was one of the founding members of Boone Creek with Ricky Skaggs, Jerry Douglas and Wes Golding. In the early part of 1979, Doyle Lawson called to see if I would partner with Lou Reid, Jimmy Haley and himself to form Doyle Lawson and Quicksilver. I was there for the first 6 years of the band and the first 5 recording projects. I returned to Quicksilver in 2003 and worked there again for the next four years. Between those stints, I was a founding member of IIIrd Tyme Out, Lou Reid, Terry Baucom & Carolina and BlueRidge. I toured with the Mashville Brigade in 2010 and have played shows with Tony Rice & Mountain Heart, Dale Ann Bradley, Kenny & Amanda Smith, Mark Newton Band and participated in various other banjo related projects. Currently I am working shows with Cody Shuler, teaching privately and serving as banjo instructor at camps and clinics. I am recording my second project for the John Boy & Billy label scheduled for release later this year.The first single from the forthcoming Terry Baucom project on the John Boy & Billy label is now available for FREE download right here on the Terry Baucom Reverbnation page.
