Tommy Edwards and LaNelle Davis are seasoned performers of traditional southern music, singing and playing a variety of instruments paying homage to the sounds and voices of the late greats of the past.

Edwards is lead singer and guitarist for The Bluegrass Experience, and host of Life 103.1′s “Bluegrass Saturday Night.” A professional performer for over 35 years, Edwards has twice been named World Champion Bluegrass Guitarist. He also served for 30 years in the Randolph and Chatham county schools as a teacher, coach and administrator.

Davis’s love of traditional music is rooted in dance. She called numerous square dances in NC and toured with The Apple Chill and Cane Creek Cloggers in the early 1980s. As a member of award winning old-time band, Big Medicine, she performed and recorded extensively. Retired from 30 years with Durham County Social Services, she now splits her time between playing music and making mosaics.
