Hailing from Murfreesboro, Tennessee, the Glade City Rounders formed out of a love of old recordings of traditional southern string band, blues, and jug band music. While their music is strongly influenced by musicians from the state of Tennessee and the Tennessee River Valley region, their musical influences stretch from Memphis to Bristol and from Louisville to the Mississippi River Delta. Each member contributes their own element to create a live show that is truly unique.
William "Tennessee Bill" See was raised in the Middle Tennessee old-time music tradition. He is an award winning traditional fiddler and banjo player.
Josh Smith is an old-time roots musician whose specialities include flatpick guitar, clawhammer banjo, and "jugging." He has studied and performed with some of the regions' most well-known old-time musicians. His jugging is considered second to none.
Richard "Squirrel" McLain is one of the most skilled and unique performers in the modern day old-time scene. His award winning archaic, almost lost, style of banjo playing is known as the upstroke. His vaudevillian style of singing is eerily reminiscent of Uncle Dave Macon, Stringbean, or Grandpa Jones.
Together, the trio forms a sound that is original, yet familiar. When this band takes off on a tune, you can bet there will not be a still foot in the audience.
