Tray Wellington – banjo 

So happy to have Tray along with us, for this particular project and promotion of our new single, “Calling Me”. Based out of Johnson City, TN, Tray has become a first-call banjo player throughout the bluegrass world. His progressive, yet tasteful licks, and his ingenuity mixed with sensitivity to the craft make him an enjoyable player to both work with and listen to. He is the winner of the prestigious IBMA Instrumentalist of the Year (banjo) Momentum Award in 2019. Did we say how happy we are to have him picking with us on our new single?

    I just wanted to say that I grew up listening to your album “High and Lively”. I was born and raised in Fayette county, WV. About 15 minuted from high and Lively street in fayetteville. Music has always been a part of my life and influences me even more when it seems to echo from the mountains I was raised in. My parents went to see your show you had there at the Whitewater rafting lodge. You were sitting on a stump signing autographs and my mom tripped and fell into your lap 😂. I just had to share that. I live in Florida now so nolstalgia hits me hard sometimes. When I want to go home, I just pop in high and Lively, some John prine, or some Flatt and scruggs. I’m a self taught guitarist and it’s music like yours that inspires me to continue to try to better myself. In more ways than one. Thank you for your time, and keep up the good work!

    Hi Sarah–Thank you for sharing that great memory and the fact that you like my music! We always enjoy hearing that! The teacher part of me loves to hear that you are inspired to keep working on guitar! We will be in FL with our bluegrass/folk band in 2019, if not before. If you listen to Spotify, please add me to your playlists. Thanks, again!
