Trevor McKenzie is a multi-instrumentalist, singer and a songwriter with an uncanny ability to portray life's experiences in music. Originally from southwest Virginia and the progeny of cattle farmers, he first gravitated to old-time music through an early interest in regional history and a keen desire to avoid doing manual labor. Though only mildly successful in the latter ambition, Trevor gathered a respect for the communities, historical events and stories which continue to build the canon of traditional music. Encouraged initially by family and church music, his formal musical training began at Jim Lloyd's Barbershop in Rural Retreat, Virginia. In recent years he has continued to learn from and be humbled by skilled musicians from along the Appalachians and around the world. Trevor currently lives in Mable, North Carolina where he performs as a sideman with several regional acts including the Elkville String Band and the Laurel Creek String Band. This show will not only highlight Trevor's song writing skills featuring songs from his new album - "Generational Things", but be prepared for some rollicking old-time music as he is joined by Steve Kruger, Brandon Holder and other surprise guest.
