Established in 1972, Famous Old Time Music Company has a
long and colorful
history. Known over the years as the home for
all things bluegrass, we have offered new and vintage
instruments, lessons, repairs, jams and entertainment in
both the Cincinnati and Wapakoneta areas. The current
economic climate, however, just won’t support a bricks and
mortar specialty shop. While new and used instruments are
still available by appointment, we have restructured Famous
Old Time Music Company to emphasize services such as
and repairs. Details about these endeavors follow.

Mike Elliot, Kitty McIntyre, Vernon
McIntyre, Tammy Powers, Robert Campbell (May, 2014)
Famous Old Time Music Company is home base for
Vernon McIntyre's Appalachian Grass, a hard-driving
bluegrass group with a long and colorful history. Leader
Vernon McIntyre began his professional career as a banjo
picker in the early 1960’s. Having played both banjo and guitar on
the Grand Ole Opry Stage and with all of the seminal bluegrass
artists, Vernon met his future wife, Kitty, in the early 1980s.
Kitty had played in the school orchestra throughout high
school and was completely unaware of the non-classical world of
bluegrass music. When her brother, Andy, introduced her to the
bluegrass sound via Vernon McIntyre ’s Appalachian Grass, she fell
in love with both the music and the leader of the band, Vernon.
Robert Campbell started banjo lessons at age 15 at the
Cincinnati Famous Old Time Music with Vernon as his teacher.
Mike Elliott on mandolin and vocals.
Tammy Powers played electric bass and was a fiddle
student of Kitty’s at Famous Old Time Music Cincinnati prior to
being recruited as an upright bass player with Appalachian Grass.
