Ron Truman (Bass)

Born July 5 1972 in Waynesburg, Pennsylvania.  Raised in Clay, WV. Started playing music at an early age of 5. Started playing bluegrass at age 10 and has been hooked since.  Had the pleasure of sharing the stage with greats like Raymond Fairchild,  and also the late James King. My bass idol would be Jason Moore, so I try and play that style when possible. Ron now makes his home in Charleston, WV. I would like to give thanks  first and foremost to our lord and savior Jesus Christ for giving me the gift of music, my mom Carol, and my nephew Jamie, and my aunt Myrtle for always supporting me. And want to thank Nessie & Ronnie Hunt, Josh Brown, Matt Hiser for their great friendship, and good music for the last few years, ya'll help me understand music in a whole different way.
