Carl Story’s Ramblin’ Mountaineers

Carrying on the tradition of founder Carl Story, his Ramblin’ Mountaineers continue to delight audiences with their signature bluegrass gospel sound.

Story founded the Ramblin’ Mountaineers in the 1930s. Working with the Mercury and Columbia record labels, he and the band made important contributions to the development of country and bluegrass music over the next several decades. Such bluegrass legends as Tater Tate and the Brewster Brothers first made names for themselves while playing with the Mountaineers. And Story himself played fiddle with the legendary Bill Monroe and his Blue Grass Boys. Story passed away in 1995, but his influence is still felt through the music of the Ramblin’ Mountaineers.
