No Tools Loaned, Bluegrass Band

No Tools Loaned No Tools Loaned is a hot new bluegrass band based in Frankfort. The members’ individual styles blend to create a unique overall sound they refer to as “third-generation bluegrass.”

Although No Tools Loaned performs much of its own material, the band also plays the more traditional bluegrass music that all the members grew up listening to at live performances. The result is great instrumentals, tight vocal harmonies, and a lot of fun for band and audience alike.

Although this band is newly formed, each of its members is a seasoned veteran. Separately and together, they have played at venues ranging from concert halls and festivals to weddings and churches.

Among them, the men of No Tools Loaned—Wesley Atha, Jack Burch, Scotty Campbell, and Paul Douglas Williams—play banjo, mandolin, guitar, dobro, and bass fiddle.
