Rabbit Hash String Band
"Just two hops and a jump" from the Ohio River in Rabbit Hash, Kentucky, and not a "fur piece" from Cincinnati, the Rabbit Hash String Band is pickin' tunes.
Band members Russ and Barb Childers live in Batavia, Ohio, and primarily present old timey music to area school children. Warren and Judy Waldron, who live in Somerville, Ohio, play and call square dances all over the region. Tommy Taylor, whose health no longer allows him to play with the band, still provides his cornball humor from Rabbit Hash. His music and humor carries on a family tradition: his brother was the beloved 1930s WJJD Chicago country radio personality Pappy Taylor of Uncle Henry Warren's Kentucky Mountaineers Band.
Today's Rabbit Hash String Band features the fine fiddling of Warren Waldron paired to the clawhammer banjo playing of Russ Childers, with Judy Waldron and Barb Childers driving the tempo on guitar and banjo uke. All members, without warning, have been known to belt out a song. Take a trip "home" with their fun-loving music.
