The Bluegrass Champs:
Scott Stoneman - Fiddle
Jimmy Stoneman - Upright Bass
Donna Stoneman - Mandolin
Van Stoneman - Rhythm Guitar

This recording is as much about rockabilly, 50’s country and blues as it is about bluegrass - more a hybrid by a young, but seasoned, combo in changing musical times.

The Bluegrass Champs held their own or even bested other Washington D.C. talents like Roy Clark, Patsy Cline, Link Wray and Charlie Daniels. They had spent most all of their lives in music and in the late 1950’s were soaking up all the new sounds without denying their airy mountain roots.

As houseband on the Don Owens Show, they were often called upon to back guest singers and players. Recorded by Leon Kagarise directly from an episode of the TV Broadcast, this record also showcases the jamboree nature of the program, including live commercial reads and commentary by Don Owens himself.
