RVCC House Concert with
The Highlaner String Band
The Highlander String Band is a collection of Rockingham County musicians playing traditional Appalachian Mountain music. We play the Top Ten Tunes of the 50’s and 60’s – 1850 that is. We play all types of music from instrumental dance tunes, such as jigs, reels, hornpipes and waltzes, to the slow, mournful and powerful tunes depicting the sorrow and tragedy of frontier mountain life.
We also include lots of songs that provide a vivid portrayal of the history of the early settlers throughout the Appalachian Mountains. Members of the band have been collecting tunes for most of their lives and truly enjoy sharing their love of the music with you.
The band members include Jim Gaskins on fiddle and guitar, Phyllis Gaskins on Appala- chian dulcimer, Brent Holl on guitar and Gene Bowlen playing clawhammer banjo, mandolin and octave mandolin.Listen and learn more at www.bearcademusic.com/the-highlander-string-band
