Recently disbanded Tennessee group which played old-time stringband music.Read More...
The band formed when four folks crossed paths in historical country music town, Johnson City, Tennessee, the site of the Ralph Stanley's first recording with the Stanley Brothers, and today's Bluegrass and Country Music Program at East Tennessee State University. Singer/songwriter guitarist Martha Scanlan and mandolinist Thomas Sneed moved to the heart of Appalachia from West of the Mississippi after hearing about the region's music while playing bluegrass in Europe. Fiddler and dancer Heidi Andrade came to the region from California with her husband, banjoist Roy Andrade, a native of Asheville, North Carolina. In the winter of 2002 Bristol, Tennessee native and bassist Brandon Story joined the band. Even before the Reeltime Travelers played together, each had a love for mountain music and a passion to learn the stories behind it. They continue to do fieldwork, interviewing old musicians, uncovering forgotten tunes, and in their shows and children's workshops, passing along the traditions they've collected.

- LyricsPaths are there for us to follow, this is gospel I believe
Angels are around us flying, truth and mercy to receive
Pictures of uncommon nature, painted by a masters hand
Draw me ever on life's journey, rendered thus to understand
As a songbird that is fallen, only to regain the sky
- LyricsI let out from your back door
Kicked an old can fifty miles or more
Written right there on the side of the can
"There's a little bird of heaven right here in your hand"
I looked up and I looked back
