Brett Ratliff, banjo
Van Lear, KY
Presently Whitesburg, KY
Raised by a coal miner and teacher in Van Lear, Kentucky, Brett Ratliff grew up with a love for the mountains, its people, and its culture. As a youngster, Brett starting singing in church and sang along to recordings of Loretta Lynn and Hank Williams. As a teenager he began playing guitar for bluegrass bands. But when Brett met musical father and son Jamie and Jesse Wells he became hooked on the moving, emotionally charged mountain music of his home. Since then, Brett has learned banjo tunes and ballads from some of the masters of old time music, like knock-down banjo player George Gibson of Knott County or Pike County fiddle and banjo player Paul David Smith.

I.D. Stamper (1907-1986)
Harmonica, banjo, and dulcimer
Few traditional instrumentalists have offered as innovative and unusual a technical approach to their instrument as Kentucky mountain dulcimer artist, I.D. Stamper. It was not until I.D. was in his thirties that he built and began to play his first dulcimer, having first mastered the harmonica and 5-string banjo as a youth, but it quickly became his first love and trademark.
