Buck Mountain Band


Buck Mountain Band takes its name from the mountain in Grayson County, Virginia, near the home of Bob and Sue. In its original incarnation forty or fifty years ago, the Buck Mountain Band had as its core players Wade Ward and Charlie Higgins; aiming to play in their spirit, the new group formed in 1999 at the Galax Old Fiddlers Convention, with Ray Chatfield on banjo and Dan Peck playing guitar. Dan has since held the banjo spot, and Grayson County musicians such as Jesse Lovell, Terry Gleason, Gilbert Suitt, Karen Carr, Jo Ann Shinault, Amy Boucher, Roger Wilson, Katherine Higgins and (from Patrick County) Brien Fain have at various times played with the group. Larry McPeak, the newest member, brings a whole other dimension to the band with his fine singing. Regular participants at regional fiddlers' conventions, the Buck Mountain Band has also enjoys playing for the fine dancers at Applewood Music Park, in Cana, the Rex Theater in Galax and the Floyd Country Store. Buck Mountain Band are resident musicians at the Blue Ridge Music Center in Galax, Va. and perform there every Monday in the summer months.
