Back when we produced the Barraks Coffeehouse Concert Series in Hobe Sound, Florida, my wife and I kept in close touch with other music venues throughout the Southeast. We would often visit these other coffeehouses and clubs in our travels. One of our favorite places to sit a spell and hear some good music was the Down Home in Johnson City, Tennessee.
It was at the Down Home that singer/songwriter and guitarist Martha Scanlan and mandolinist Thomas Sneed met husband and wife team Heidi Andrade (fiddler and dancer) and banjoist Roy Andrade. A little later Brandon Story joined the group on bass. The Reeltime Travelers were born. Reeltime Old-Time Stringband Music.
This group of young musicians is keeping the tradition of the Southern Appalachian Stringband alive and well.
