Biography
Jim Lloyd & The Skyliners represent the newest member of the Mountain Roads Recordings’ family. Continuing the offering of the very best in bluegrass and old time music, this group brings still yet another style of Appalachian Highlands music to the Mountain Roads Recordings lineup.

Jim Lloyd’s musical roots extend back to at least four generations of fiddlers, guitar players, dancers, and singers from the Appalachian mountains of Virginia and West Virginia. Rooted in a strong oral tradition, he shares his heritage through stories of his own experiences as a boy growing up in southwest Virginia and through family lore that has been handed down, stories of coal mining, hunting, farming, trading, and family life. He also has a store of the traditional Jack Tales, Grandfather Tales, ghost stories, and Civil War stories of his region.

Every musician has a collection of songs, gathered over the years, that holds special memories or meanings. These songs, collected and stored in our musical attic, are offered in this collection by Jim Lloyd and The Skyliners in styles and unique arrangements developed over the years of pulling them out, dusting them off, then gently placing them back in memory until the time is right for offering them up in a project.

Songs From My Attic are our musical memories of songs that may be familiar to many of you and presented in a style unique to our group and to the Appalachian Highlands of Southwest Virginia…Enjoy!
