Although Chris hasn't been playing banjo his whole life, he's been listening to it's sweet sounds since the day he was born! His daddy was a hard-charging Appalachian frailer, playing only in the midnight hours in the family living room, and many sleepless nights were had listening to Stringbean, Roscoe Holcomb and Grandpa Jones. Chris somehow survived it all, picked up some Scruggs 3- finger picking licks, and went on to help form and play with the local favorite Mooncat band. After a multi-year stint, Chris became the lead banjo player with the alt-bluegrass group Flood Road. When not playing banjo with Dyer Switch, he loves practicing his music in the company of his two beloved cats!
