Vocals, Whistles, Concertina, Percussion

      Bryant Henderson is a native of the small town of Wallace, NC, located about forty miles north of Wilmington on the line of the historic Wilmington and Weldon Railroad. A retired public school teacher, he now lives in Chapel Hill.

      After attending Jay Ungar and Molly Mason's Northern Week Fiddle and Dance Camp at Ashokan, NY, in 2002, Bryant decided to encourage several of his reenactor buddies to meet on a regular basis to practice.

      "I had always complained that I had no musicians who lived close by with whom I could play. So, we just decided that we would have to create something for ourselves. After playing every other week or so for about three months, we met Troy Parker at Bentonville, and we knew immediately we had the makings of a band.

      Since then, our numbers have doubled with other kindred spirits who just wanted to be a part of what we were doing. With real-life issues like jobs and families, we don't get together nearly as much as we'd like, but we make the most of it when we do."
