The Bluegrass Brethren Gospel Band Members
Tim plays guitar and is Bluegrass Brethren’s last remaining “original” member. He is the groups primary song writer and to date he has over 100 songs to his credit. He has a “countryish” sounding baritone voice. In concert he is known for asking the audience lots of questions and for his fun-loving personality. He has been performing with the group since its beginning in 1977.
Les is known as Bluegrass Brethren’s “quiet one” but his multiple instrumental talents speak for themselves. Since 1992, Les has been adding his musical gifts on banjo, mandolin, and guitar to the ministry. He sings baritone and bass too.
Lori is now the band’s fiddle player. Originally she played the bass when she joined in 1997. Her fiddle playing is very tasteful and her vocals add a refreshing, beautiful twist to Bluegrass Brethren songs.
Joining the group in January of 2002 as the bass player, he has moved on to play the mandolin. He also specializes in Duo style mandolin. He sings tenor and lead vocals and his warm tones are a great addition to the group.
Jerry is our very dedicated bass player. He has years of experience on bass and various other instruments. His steady heartbeat keeps us all on track.
