Johnny & the Jambusters There’s no telling who is going to show up to be part of Jonny and the Jambusters, but one thing’s for sure is that they won’t disappoint. Virginia State Folklorist somehow rescued the obscure and mysterious bluegrass journeyman Jonny Clutch, who fronts this rag tag ensemble of virtuosic pickers....the esteemed folklorist Joe Wilson called the group simply “hellishly good.” One of the most beloved Jambusters was Houston Caldwell, who is forever in our hearts.

Albert Hash Memorial String Band: Albert ... helped start the old time music program at Mt. Rogers Combined School in Whitetop, VA. Later, he began giving lessons at Mt. Rogers School to the students there. After he passed away, Audrey [his daughter] carried on the music program until she moved to Lansing, NC. Emily Spencer now carries on the old time music program and it has become an every day class that students get credit. The school band is named the Albert Hash Memorial String Band.
