Mac Martin & The Dixie Travelers

Born William Colleran on April, 26, 1925 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, bluegrass artist Mac Martin has been a top-notch picker and crooner since the late 1940s. A traditionalist in the vein of Lester Flatt, Bill Monroe, and Ralph Stanley, Martin spent his formative years basking in the warm glow of the radio, soaking in as much music as he could from Wheeling, Virginia's WWVA and Nashville's WSM, the latter of which was responsible for airing The Grand Ole Opry. He formed the Pike County Boys at the end of the '40s, a high and lonesome bluegrass trio that also included fiddle player Bill Higgins and bass player Bill Wagner. He formed a new trio called the Dixie Travelers in 1957, this time with fiddler Mike Carson and banjo player Billy Bryant. The Travelers continued to perform and record well into the early 21st century, with the majority of the material being released and eventually reissued via Rural Rhythm Records. ~ James Christopher Monger

Bluegrass rules! I like how they threaded in a bar from Sourwood Mountain!
Why don't any bluegrass bands have harmonica? There are harmonica relics from Civil War camps. Come on boys don't tell me there weren't harmonica players in those early bluegrass campfire jams!

Dawn - you get it. Most people don't. Bluegrass is just good, clean fun. How can you not feel happy and get up and dance?

Great Pittsburgh band.
Started in 1954 by Mac and fiddler Mike Carson, the Dixie Travelers are one of
the oldest continuously performing bands in Bluegrass history.
Banjo Bill was one of the best.
We really miss him.
