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 lessons and repairs.  Details about these endeavors follow.

 

LESSONS, REPAIRS, and SALES by APPOINTMENT

Though the two original store locations have closed, Famous Old Time Music Company can still supply all your bluegrass needs.  Master bluegrass musician, Vernon McIntyre, offers Scruggs style banjo and bluegrass rhythm guitar lessons at the Cincinnati studio.  Kitty McIntyre, Vernon’s wife and longtime fiddler with the Appalachian Grass, offers fiddle, mandolin, acoustic guitar, and upright bass lessons at the Cincinnati studio plus at satellite locations in Indiana and Kentucky.  

Vernon can also help if your instrument needs repair work.  He can re-glue your fiddle, adjust your banjo, restring your guitar, or do most any kind of repair you might need.   

Operating by appointment, phone, and on-line, the Cincinnati studio sells instruments, accessories, and other merchandise.   For an appointment, just call 513-521-2706 or 513-607-1874 or email us.

                              

 

Vernon McIntyre’s APPALACHIAN GRASS
 

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.
