Steve Terrill - Mandolin, Banjo, Hawaiian Guitar & Vocals

Steve Terrill was raised in Bedford Virginia. At the age of 16 he began to learn Woody Guthrie songs from his High School Latin teacher on the guitar. That same teacher gave Steve his first exposure to Old Time music in 1987, at the Rockbridge Mountain Music festival. Soon after arriving in Greensboro, North Carolina to attend college he began playing in his first string band Auntie Emma & the Romp Stompers. Within a few years he began playing banjo and later the fiddle. Steve is the founding member Sissy T and the Grown Ups, the first string band for many young old time musicians including Cary Fridley and Ketch Secore of The Old Crow Medicine Show. He is an avid collector of southern recordings & devotes much time to sharing his love of Old Time music with others. Steve recently completed the third season of the Carolina Roots Series at Guilford College, and CEO of the international media conglomerate Old 97 Wrecords.

A Greensboro resident for over a decade, supporting his music habit with works as a web designer.
