Joe Bob and Jim Bob are the Bob Brothers and they are the Buzzard
Mountain Boys. Hailing from the north Georgia mountains, they were born
on the northern slope of the Big Buzzard Mountain near the small
outlying community of Turners Corner. In fact most folks
in that part of Lumpkin County can out-lie anyone around Dahlonega or
Blairsville. They attended school at the Possum Trot Preparatory
Academy, graduating Suma De Fracciones.
They developed their highly unorthodox musical skills while tending the
liquid corn extraction facilities operated by their pappy. Their
particular style of playing could best be described as marginally
inexpensive. It has been often said of the Bobs, that
their music is a lot better than it sounds. These two guys play an
amusing selection of Brother Duet, Old-Time music, and early Bluegrass
inspired songs, interspersed with enough corny humor to warm your heart
and take you back to the days of the traveling
minstrels! Both musicians are residents of Buzzard Mountain and are
fixtures in the North Georgia traditional music community. They are
heavily involved in the promotion of Appalachian Music in the region.
