Bio

Joe Bob and Jim Bob are the Bob Brothers and they are the Buzzard Mountain Boys. These two guys play an amusing selection of Brother Duet, Bluegrass and Old-Time music, interspersed with enough corny humor to warm your heart and take you back to the days of the traveling minstrels! Both musicians are residents of Lumpkin County, GA, and are fixtures in the North Georgia traditional music community and heavily involved in the promotion of Appalachian Music.

They recently performed at the Murphy, NC, Heritage Festival; John C. Campbell Folk School Festival; Blairsville Southeast Bluegrass Association Showcase; and the Emory Fall Festival in Atlanta. The Bob Brothers appear regularly on the Mountain Music and Medicine Show at the historic Holly Theater in Dahlonega, GA, a live radio program aired monthly on Georgia Public Radio. Upcoming events include the Appalachian Studies National Conference and the 14th Annual Bear on the Square Mountain Festival.

Joe is an accomplished mandolin, guitar, tenor-banjo, and claw hammer banjo player. His Monroe style mandolin breaks and fiery banjo strumming will set your toes to tapping. He has played in several bluegrass, old-time and gospel ensembles through the years. Jim plays a lively fiddle, old-time tenor guitar, and sets the rhythm with his solid six-string guitar work. Brother duet harmony is the Buzzard Mountain Boys’ forte and takes you back to the roots of bluegrass and rockabilly.

A large sprinkling of good-natured humor peppers their performances.

The Buzzard Mountain Boys are dedicated to preserving the early mountain music sounds and to performing these melodies in the styles that would have been heard 50 to 100 years ago.

Our music is inspired by the Delmore Brothers, Allen Brothers, Morris Brothers, Monroe Brothers, Stanley Brothers, Blue Sky Boys, Louvin Brothers, New Lost City Ramblers, Charlie Poole, Gid Tanner and the Skillet Lickers, The Prairie Ramblers, Uncle Dave Macon, Bales Brothers, Whitstein Brothers, Carter Family, Norman Blake, Stephen C. Foster, Fiddlin' John Carson, Moonshine Kate, and the Cackle Sisters.
