ABOUT 

Tennessee-based bluegrass band Troublesome Hollow has been performing since the mid-1970s as a bluegrass, newgrass, and Americana musical group. Their live shows have always offered traditional and newgrass music and witty humor. The band members are close friends and have been creating music together for almost 50 years. Although through the years, there have been some personnel changes, the three perennial core members (Tim White, Donnie Ollis, and Garry Ollis) all appear in this new release, "The Sign Shop Project."  

The Sign Shop Project showcases the original band members' talents - Tim White on banjo, guitar, jaw harp, and vocals, Donnie Ollis on Guitar and vocals, and Donnie's younger brother Garry Ollis on upright bass and vocals.  

The music on "The Sign Shop Project" was recorded on-site at Tim White Sign Company's location in Blountville, TN. Over the years, Donnie and Garry Ollis have worked and hung out at Tim White's Sign Shop so it was more than appropriate to record at the location where most of the band's rehearsals happened each week. Jeremiah Nave, originally from East Tennessee (Elizabethton), brought remote equipment from his studios in Madison, TN, and recorded initial cuts at the sign shop in Blountville. Later the band traveled to Madison, TN, to finish adding tracks. A long-time friend and recording artist, Steve Thomas, added mandolin and fiddle to the mix on several songs. The songs include old-time favorites, bluegrass tunes, and originals written by all three band members. This release is fun, rich in tradition, and fresh with original songs.  

The Troublesome Hollow band was formed in Hickory Tree, Tennessee. More than forty years ago and recorded five albums between 1979 and 1989. Through most of these years, the band centered on the brother duo of Donnie and Garry Ollis and banjo picker Tim White. The early years of the band also included the dynamic singing of the late Ron Greene and the bass playing of Rick Moore.  

During those early years (1970 -'80's) the band explored the "edges" of bluegrass music, playing many standard tunes in the traditional way and experimenting with the "Newgrass" sound. They performed together until 1998 when the band members went their separate ways. Although the band members always continued to be friends, they did not pick music together from 1998 until early 2015 when Donny Ollis asked his brother Garry and Tim White to get together for some 'fun picking.' It didn't take too many get-togethers to re-kindle the old flame for Troublesome Hollow. Although almost 20 years had passed, the music returned to the band members with fond memories.  

Tim White also hosts 'Song of The Mountains' at the Lincoln Theater in Marion, Virginia, broadcast throughout the United States on Public Television.
