About the Scott Brannon Band

The Scott Brannon Band, highly regarded for their style of traditional bluegrass music, was formed in 1995. Scott Brannon is the group's lead singer and guitar player. The band members are Tracey Dent Rohrbaugh on mandolin, Kevin Roop on banjo, Jack Leiderman on fiddle and renowned bluegrass entertainer Jerry McCoury on bass.

Scott was influenced at an early age by bluegrass legends such as Charlie Moore, Reno and Smiley and Bill Harrell. He began singing their music from the time he could talk.

Scott's recording career began when he recorded two train songs for Ray Davis's Wango Records. The songs were included on a 2-CD set entitled "Freight Train Special". Since then, Ray Davis (a well known deejay on WAMU Radio) has invited Scott to be a part of many other recording sessions with bluegrass greats, such as Michael Cleveland, David Davis, Terry Eldridge, Paul Williams, Marshall Wilborn and Ray Davis himself.

In January 1997, Scott and his band recorded their first full CD for Wango Records, entitled "Faded Love and Winter Roses". He is extremely grateful to Ray Davis for giving him the opportunity to record and perpetuate the traditional style that he has so enjoyed over the years.
Scott's next three CDs, "If I Had My Life to Live Over", "Mountain Lady", and "Just a Little Old Fashioned" (a gospel CD), were all recorded and produced on his own Arden label. His next release was "Live at Lucketts", recorded live at the old school house in Lucketts, Virginia. His most recent release is titled "Your Old Standby", on Patuxent Records.

Scott is also very proud to have been included as an artist on a Time Life project called "Plum Pitiful". He is a featured artist along with many bluegrass legends such as The Stanley Brothers, Don Reno and Bill Harrell, Charlie Moore, Red Smiley and Clyde Moody.

Scott can be heard on the World Wide Web at: worldwidebluegrass.com and on bluegrasscountry.org. Today, Scott and the band continue to travel the country entertaining audiences with their pure, true-to-their-roots, traditional bluegrass sound.
