The Tune Town Old Time Band is a North Carolina based old time band that has been making quite a name for themselves in old time music circles for the past several years. Tune Town has six musicians in the group. The band features two guitars, two fiddles, and the clawhammer banjo. Dr. Mark Handy will be playing banjo and helping out on vocals. When he’s not playing old time, Dr. Handy practices family medicine in Abingdon, Virginia.

Leon Frost will be joining Tune Town for this performance. Leon plays the mandolin and does vocals. Fold audiences are familiar with Leon as he spent many years playing with the New Ballards Branch Bogtrotters. Energetic and fun loving, Leon’s love for music is irrepressible.

With twin fiddles, you can be sure there will be lots of tunes to keep the dancers happy and on the floor.
