Leroy Troy Trio
This touring Hillbilly Trio will be led by the one & only Leroy Troy.
As Roy Rogers was to the Sons of the Pioneers, so Leroy Troy is to the Tennessee Mafia Jug Band. The Sultan of Goodlettsville, the Most Popular Man in Country Music, the ole Tennessee Slicker himself, Troy – who plays banjo, ukulele, and an elaborately outfitted scrubboard he calls “the washing machine” (in a style fashioned from long-ago Opry star Robert Lunn who played the scrubboard on Roy Acuff’s show) – has been a professional hillbilly musician since before his seminal old-time banjo act at the 1982 Knoxville World’s Fair captivated all.
A past Champion and Grand Marshal from Uncle Dave Macon Days in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, Troy picked up his show business acumen from working with the Bailes Brothers (long ago members of the Grand Ole Opry) & is the undisputed heir to the banjo acrobatics and other performance skills of the late Uncle Dave Macon; Troy knows about every banjo “monkeyshine” that Uncle Dave ever performed, and then some – his resume lists ‘Accomplished flat-foot dancer’ & ‘TV Star’, the latter thanks to appearances on Hee Haw, Outsiders Inn, and as a weekly featured guest on The Marty Stuart Show. With old-time hillbilly star power in abundance, Leroy Troy knows how to work a crowd… and he does.
