Doug Phillips

Doug Phillips was born and raised in Mars Hill, North Carolina. Tommy Hunter, Doug's cousin, has been his main influence. Woodrow Boone has also encouraged him with his fiddling, which Doug considers "not a hobby, but a way of life."

Laura Boosinger is one of North Carolina's most talented singers and interpreters of the music of the Southern Mountains.

Hilary Dirlam fell in love with Appalachian music at the age of five when her father took her to a fiddle contest. She lives in Asheville, North Carolina where she is involved in recording, performing, and documenting the music closest to her heart.
