Nobody’s Business is an old-time band from the Grayson Highlands Mountain region of southwest Virginia where the state meets North Carolina and Tennessee. Steeped in the traditions of rural old-time mountain music that has been passed down through generations in this unique area of the Blue Ridge mountains, they represent old-time music at its’ finest. Nobody’s Business features a diverse and entertaining balance of hard driving fiddle and banjo tunes, mountain ballads, old sacred songs, and square dance music. Having performed regionally, nationally, and internationally, they have many collective years of carrying the music of the mountains to audiences outside our area.
