Allen Shadd started playing guitar when he was seven years old.  He grew up traveling with various bands, eventually turning his attention to contests.  Allen is a two-time National Flatpicking champion, winning the title in 1997 and again in 2013. He is also a two-time Wayne Henderson guitar competition champion, as well as Merlefest champion, Rockygrass champion and many other state and regional titles are among his awards. 

Jack Lawrence is heralded as one of the finest acoustic guitarists in the country. Referred to as an "acoustic powerhouse," his musicianship on the flat top guitar has mesmerized audiences for decades. Jack's style is eclectic, encompassing Americana, blues, bluegrass and "sophisticated folk." Jack is highly regarded for his most prominent role as partner to Doc Watson. The two musicians traveled the country as a duo for over two decades, delighting audiences from coast to coast. Jack performs as a solo guitarist/vocalist in venues nationally and internationally.

Michael played bass with Doc and his son Merle in the 1970s and 80s, and more recently with Doc and David. He has also played with Seldom Scene and Chesapeake, and in his spare time he’s an award-winning videographer and film maker. “Doc had the ability to make old songs sound new and exciting,” he says. “We plan to use what we’ve learned from Doc to do the same thing with modern audiences.”
