Vernon McIntyre’s APPALACHIAN GRASS is a bluegrass band with style.  The band delivers an entertaining stage show with driving instrumentals, close knit harmonies, amusing novelty songs, and a show stopping trick fiddling act.  The combination of music, energy, showmanship, and humor just can’t be beat.  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.  Lead vocals rest mostly in Vernon’s capable hands with an occasional song from Tammy, Susan, or Jenny Lee.

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.

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.

Oh, and don’t miss her old time trick fiddling.  Trick fiddling???  ‘Kitty’s Trick Fiddling’
