The following exerpt is from their website:
The Green River Boys from western North Carolina started as a group by getting together on Tuesday nights at the home of Charles Jones.Jones who was the original banjo player of the group along with Fred Lyons, bass-man Ireland Brown and CA Morgan played their instruments, while Bruce Cole and later James coot McDowell sang those old time gospel songs in late 1999 towards the end of the year.
In December 1999 the green river boys were invited to perform at the Saluda family restaurant (now shaffers grill) in Saluda, NC. This is a gig that we have continued every other weekend since, to the delight of local residents and travelers and truckers passing through or visiting the Carolinas.
The Green River Boys have shared the stage with many nationally know gospel and bluegrass groups including The Primitive qt, The Jody Brown Indian family, Standing Tall, Mike Upright, Naomi and the Sego’s, The Singing Echoes, The Hoskins family, The Hayes family, The Redeemed, The Melodyaires, The Jimmy Justice family, and Furman Boyce and Harmony Express ,the Jason Camp familyAND THE PRINCIPLES.
