Leading the band is longtime member, Virginia Country Music Hall of Famer, and multi-award winning banjo picker, Sammy Shelor (banjo and harmony vocals) who has put together a wealth of talent that include Brandon Rickman (lead & harmony vocals and guitar), Mike Hartgrove (fiddle), Barry Reed (bass, harmony vocals), and Randy Jones (lead & harmony vocals, mandolin) all performing the distinctive LRB sound fans love. Lonesome River Band's long career is filled with a multitude of awards and recognitions including their 2012 International Bluegrass Music Association (IBMA) Award for Instrumental Recorded Event of the Year for their song "Angeline the Baker" from their CHRONOLOGY VOLUME ONE album.

      Although rooted in the tradition sound of artists including Flatt and Scruggs and Bill Monroe, LRB has always featured a driving rhythm, tight vocal harmonies and arrangement, in addition to dynamic improvisations. Just listen to their treatment of Angeline the Baker, with Shelor, Jones and Hartgrove trading licks on this old time foot tapper." HUDSON VALLEY BLUEGRASS
