Here's the complete second hour of this wonderful old time band as they performed on January 7, 2005 in the historic Rex Theater in Galax, Virginia. Many in the theater that night said the second hour's performance was even better than the first. So it's not too late to join in the fun and listen to the hilarious intros, jokes and great songs as this band performs in old-time costume to a roaring full house. In this hour you'll hear Carol belt out a rousing version of Banjo Pickin' Girl while she and Dick perform a duet on their banjos? And James Christian does another wonderful job on a new song he wrote for Chirstmas. If Jesus Were Not Born There Would Be No Christmas tells it all. The band's rendition of Rocky Top is simply great and the dancing crowd loved it. There's many more great songs, so come listen as these artists continue their historic musical tour of their little mountain home town in Oriskany, Virginia.
