The Legendary WBT Briarhoppers in concert

Friday, August 17, 2018

A fun night of bluegrass music in the Timken Performance Hall. Founded in 1934, Charles H. Crutchfield started the band to satisfy a potential sponsor looking for a hillbilly music group to showcase the sponsor's products on a radio show. Known as the WBT Briarhoppers, this group is one of the longest-lived bluegrass/stringband music group in US history.

The band influenced many country music and bluegrass stars such as Bill Monroe, Earl Scruggs, Curly Seckler, Don Gibson, Doc Watson, and a whole bunch of others.
