Kentucky Wild Horse


Kentucky Wild Horse

Kentucky Wild Horse, named after an old Eastern Kentucky fiddle tune, plays traditional old-time, bluegrass, and swing music learned directly from earlier generations of Kentucky musicians, both professional and amateur. The members of the group have been playing this music all their lives.

Bandleader John Harrod (guitar, fiddle, and vocals) has been documenting, recording, and performing traditional music for more than 35 years. In the 1970s and ’80s, he played with a number of bands—such as the Prograss Red Hot String Band, the Bill Livers String Ensemble, and the Gray Eagle Band—that re-introduced old-time musicians such as Bill Livers and Lily May Ledford to Kentucky audiences.

Jim Webb (banjo, guitar, mandolin, and vocals) is a legendary songwriter and performer in Kentucky, known for his work with the Falls City Ramblers, the Old Louisville Express, the Buzzard Rock String Band, the Gray Eagle Band, and the Juggernaut Jug Band. And Jeff Keith (mandolin, guitar, tenor banjo, and vocals) represents the younger generation of talented up-and-coming traditional musicians. He has performed with the Hogwash Revival, the Wayward Members of the Mud Bay Jug Band, and the Shanty Hollow Boys.
