About Us

Christmas 1986

May 2012

For more than 25 years, Tim Beadling and Craig Apessos have been playing music together.  They met in their freshman year at St. Vincent College in Latrobe and their paths were destined to cross. 

Tim is a self-taught guitarist who learned on an acoustic and was influenced heavily by his older brothers, Billy and Boomer (R.I.P.), as well as Bob Dylan and the Grateful Dead.

Craig, on the other hand, took guitar lessons for about 6 months and grew up playing the electric guitar.  He's a self-taught mandolinist, fiddler, and gut bucketeer.  His earlier influences include Ted Nugent, Van Halen, ZZ Top, Neil Young and Uncle Nicky.

Once they found each other, Tim and Craig were musically inseparable and have evolved through a hodgepodge of genres, as may be evident in their song list, which you can download on the home page this very site!
