Bill Hughes (Guitar, Harmonica, Chains and Vocals)
Growing up in the foothills of the Blue Ridge, Bill Hughes learned to love the mountain folkways and the glorious music people could make with just their voices and a stringed instrument. His musical heroes are the great story-tellers -- from Mozart, Gershwin and Bernstein to Springsteen, Townshend, Doc Watson and James Taylor. As much as Bill loves to play and sing, he's been told not to quit his day job as a lawyer at Alston & Bird.
