photoLegbeard happened when members of several Knoxville bands had a chance to try something different together. Legbeard has driving old-time Appalachian fiddle/banjo music and vocal harmony at its core, with branches into original songs from the members and a few country folk gems. Jessica Watson’s clawhammer banjo/guitar, and Meade Armstrong’s fiddle/guitar are driving forces of local favorites Red Shoes and Rosin. Daniel Kimbro tours internationally as bassist with Jerry Douglas and the Earls of Leicester. Greg Horne is a Laurel Theater regular as a songwriter, fiddler with the Bearded, and multi instrumentalist (along with Kimbro) with local songwriters R.B. Morris and Jay Clark. Seth Hopper brings jazz influenced fiddle from his work with Kukuly and Gypsy Fuego, Scott Miller, Christabel and the Jons, and many others. No one has claimed responsibility for the band name.
