Picking and Grinning With Hillbreed

If you like bluegrass and good down home singing, you'll love Hillbreed.

They were in our area doing a benefit sing for Donna Duff today at the SJC Fire Department located at Fairplain.

The singing group is made up of members of the James Harrison family. Give them an instrument and they will play it.

They are a great act to watch. They don't just sing and play, they put on a show.

They sang many classics plus a song wrote by a group member telling about their P-I-G they have to spell in front of so he won't know he's going to the B-U-T-C-H-E-R to become B-A-C-O-N and P-O-R-K C-H-O-P-S in the S-K-I-L-L-E-T.

They played their version of the poor man's Dueling Banjos.

When you can't afford two banjos, two people duel on one.

And as the song says, Momma don't allow no suspender playing....

The fiddle player walked out into the crowd and performed on a chair.

Dad and daughter harmonized together.

And do you know what instrument this is?

It's a Dobro!

Yes, give them an instrument and they will play it....banjo, fiddle, Dobro, harmonica, guitars, and mandolin.

Good times.

Good food - hot dogs with all the fixins (chili, slaw, ketchup, mustard and onions). Mmm, mmm, nothing can compare to a good ole West Virginia hot dog.

And good singing and fellowship for a good cause.


  1. I just wanted to say dad looks like Santa :)

  2. Sounds like so much fun! That is for sure my kind of music.
