Jim & Lynna Woolsey coming

to Red Barn Radio soundstage

Showtime: 8 pm

Born into a family of musicians, Jim began playing with a popular local band The Patoka Valley Boys when he was just fifteen years old.  Soon after, he and Lynna met and married, and she also started  playing and singing in the same band. In 1979, a documentary was made about the band and is still posted on folkstream.net. Tough, Pretty or Smart, which was produced for public television by Dick Cane and Dillon Buston.


As a solo act or in a band, Jim has shared the stage with acts like The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Andy Williams, Marty Robbins, etc. Both Jim and Lynna have won various bluegrass awards for Old Time Vocals, Guitar, Mandolin as well as many band titles. In 2002 and 2003, their band Fields of Home, won first place in the Indiana Picking and Fiddling Contest. Jim and Lynna have performed together at the Bluebird Café in Nashville and Goldie’s Opera House in Owensboro, KY. They also won the Kentucky Fried Chicken Talent Hunt in 1989.  Jim also appeared on You Can Be a Star.
