Oak Grove String Band formed in 2012. Tommy Brooks & Brian Edmonson have performed in various bands over the years, most notably Harvest. As they honed in on their acoustical picking skills an vocals their roots began to flourish into some thorough bread bluegrass. With Thomas Fitts on the bass and Tim Spence on the banjo the lineup was almost complete.
As a string quartet they practiced at least weekly and right away began performing live building a following fast. In 2014 Mark Crowder was brought into the mix for some fiddling finesse and Oak Grove String Band was now complete. Throughout the year they would perform all size shows across the Carolina's.
In 2015 Oak Grove String Band began showcasing their originals. At some point in 2015 their debut EP is set to be released.
