Performing old traditional bluegrass tunes with a range of hard-driving energetic tunes to slow ballads and gospels as we know them from the Pioneers of Bluegrass such as Jimmy Martin, Flatt & Scruggs and others, with a strong emphasis on vocal harmony. TrueGrass has been performing at many venues in the Virginia, Maryland, North Carolina and East Tennessee areas. TrueGrass incorporates musicians with many years of experience that bring a blend of traditional bluegrass alive that we all grew up with.

The Wolfe Brothers (Wolfe Bros.) play and sing traditional old-time music and their repertoire includes some original material as well. The members of the group include Jerry Correll, Dale Morris, Casey Hash, and Donna Correll. All members live in the Elk Creek Valley of Grayson County, Virginia.

Although The Wolfe Brothers String Band first formed during the mid 1970s, the group re-established their unique old time sound in the early 1990s. Featuring three vocalists, the band's repertoire ranges from rarely heard traditional songs and tunes to their own original material.

The Wolfe Brothers have played at many venues including Merlefest, the Carter Fold Festival, Floydfest, the Barter Theater, and the Delaware Valley Bluegrass Festival. Bluegrass Unlimited featured an article about the group in their June '04 issue, and they have appeared on the acclaimed PBS television series, Song of the Mountains. The Wolfe Brothers String Band was named 2013 Appalachian Cultural Music Association (ACMA) Old Time Vocal Group of the Year.
