Reeltime Travelers


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.

Thanks Lucy. I was beginning to wonder if anyone was out htere this week!
I know you love stringband music as much as anyone. It's good to see a younger set taking such an interest, and doing it so well!
