Vernon McIntyre’s APPALACHIAN GRASS is a bluegrass band with style.  The band delivers an entertaining stage show with driving instrumentals, close knit harmonies, and amusing novelty songs.  Each band member contributes a unique element to the Appalachian Grass. The band is unified by Vernon’s matchless rhythm guitar picking, while Robert Campbell’s hard driving banjo is the backbone of the bluegrass sound. Kitty and her fiddle add a spark of excitement.  Susan’s shimmering mandolin offers another texture in the mix while Tammy’s bass provides the structure for the rest of the band’s musical inventions. Lead vocals rest mostly in Vernon’s capable hands with an occasional song from Kitty, Tammy, or Susan.  The combination of music, energy, showmanship, and humor just can’t be beat.

Vernon McIntyre is an exciting and entertaining MC. He has the unique ability to infuse his shows with the warmth and spontaneity of a small family gathering even when playing for thousands.  It’s old fashioned entertainment at it’s best, fun to watch and fun to be a part of. Click photo for bio.

When Kitty McIntyre steps up to the mic, it’s time to fasten the seat belts.  Her bluegrass fiddling can ramp everything up a notch on a fiddle tune or bring out the sweetness of a ballad or waltz. Click photo for bio.
