Old Time String Band
Grayson County, Virginia
Old time music is an ensemble-based, hard-driving form that has inspired dancers across southern Appalachia for generations. One of the epicenters of old-time music is the small community of Whitetop, Virginia, in Grayson County, home of the Whitetop Mountain Band, a family band that has entertained audiences for more than 40 years. Renowned fiddler and instrument builder Albert Hash started the band in the 1940s.
