The Hillbilly Gypsies, a revered West Virginia bluegrass band known for its lively, high-energy performances and a great faithfulness to old-fashioned style—the five-player ensemble performs around a single vintage ribbon microphone—has been dazzling audiences for more than a decade. Guitarist and frontman Trae Buckner describes the band’s barn-party music as a mix of “good timin’ string band with hard-driving mountain music,” adding that the group’s sound owes much to the musical stylings of some of the earliest bluegrass greats like Bill Monroe, Earl Scruggs, and Lester Flatt, to name a few. “A lot of old-timers say we sound a lot like the way they remember bluegrass when it first started,” Trae says.
