Greg Speas is a singer/songwriter from North Carolina and has played in several groups over the years, including the Roan Mountain Hilltoppers. Along with his original compositions and his love for the traditional folk songs and ballads, his interpretation of these tunes has developed into a style that is unique. Greg now lives in Revere, NC.
Dan Williams is a singer songwriter from Madison County. He accompanies his original songs with his twelve string guitar and harmonica. Dan draws his material from historic family stores and life experiences. He also plays from the genre of Americana and especially enjoys putting his own interpretation to many favorites.
Originally from the west coast, Kare Ane Strong grew up listening to the folk music of the 1960s and at a young age dreamed of being a folk singer. Later in life, she fell in love with the traditional music of Appalachia and moved to North Carolina. Her love for writing poetry, for singing, and for creativity led her to the discovery of song writing. She says it is the perfect art form for her. She has a new album of childrens songs coming out soon.
