Multi-instrumentalist Paul Brown is well known to central Ohio audiences from his time with "The Pleasant Mountain Boys", "Death By Banjo", and now with his new band "Fiddle Me This". Paul is a two time Ohio state champion banjo player and has placed in the top 5 at the National Bluegrass Banjo Championships in Winfield, Kansas twice. His highly melodic style is heavily influenced by his fiddle playing, which also has won numerous awards. He currently teaches advanced banjo at Denison University.
Zeke Hutchison (mandolin) grew up with music all around. Both his grandfathers played the fiddle and his father and uncle performed nationally as the Hutchison Brothers. Zeke recently recorded with Tim O'Brien (performing at Natalie's on April 11) on his Short Order Sessions, and O'Brien states that "Zeke is one of the very best unsung mandolin players in the world."
