Biographies of the band members...

Maggie Sigmon

I am the youngest member of the band at age 12. I like to play “Old Joe Clark” on my fiddle and help my sister Mollie sing some duets. We have a lot of fun and I enjoy it. Outside of music I attend Startown Elementary School where I am in the 6th grade. My favorite sport is basketball and I also play on a traveling softball team.

Mollie Sigmon

I am 18 years old and play mandolin for our band. I also sing lead and duets with my sister Maggie. Originally I started playing fiddle but switched when brother Beau broke both his wrists in an accident. He could attend his lessons so I filled in for him and have been playing mandolin ever since. I enjoy all the venues we play but my favorite is Merlefest. There is nothing like being on stage there.

I enjoy softball and basketball in addition to my music.

Beau Sigmon

I play mandolin and lead guitar for the band. I am a music major and love all type of music. I also play music in several other bands (from rock to jazz to handbells). I also play banjo, bass, dobro and keyboards. I want to have a career in the music business. I love playing at Floyd Country Store but Merlefest is the greatest. The excitement of being on stage is over the top for me. There are not enough hours in the day for my music.

Anna Sigmon

I play banjo for the band. My Dad taught me and I have been playing for about 10 years. Playing music with my family is fun, I especially love playing with my Popaw. I love fast tunes- the “old” guys in the band barely keep up with me. Playing music keeps our family together.

I am a graphic arts major in college and I love animals. I have a Great Dane named Duke (who is bigger than I am).

Mark Sigmon

I have been playing fiddle since the age of 9. I am an engineering graduate of North Carolina State University. After spending 17 years as an engineer for Corning Cable Systems I started my own business. Powder River Technologies specializes in powder coating a variety of metal products for industry as well as the general public.

I enjoy working with young people in a variety of settings. I teach Sunday School as well as coach the kids sports teams. I am an active member of the local Optimist Club which provide sports opportunities for area youth. Family, music and community are very important to me. I am very proud of my children.

Ray Barger

I have played bass fiddle with the band since 1976. My mother taught me to play the guitar when I was 7 years old. Randy and I have been friends since high school when we began playing music together. I was also in the US Marine Corp.

Playing music is a high point of my life. I feel like one of the family even though I am the only one with another last name! I am married to Debbie and have two daughters, Brittany and Sarah.

Randy Sigmon

Music has always been a huge part of my life. My earliest recollections are of my grandparents making music on Sunday afternoons. This continues to be one of my favorite pastimes.

I started playing guitar when I was 9 years old, switched to banjo at 12 and played that until Anna replaced me a few years ago. I now play the rhythm guitar and sing lead vocals in the band. It is a thrill for me to be on stage with my family!

Clinton Sigmon

As the first generation member, I play guitar and do some singing for the band. Over the years I have been chauffeur, sound technician, booking agent, set up man, etc. for the band. It makes me extremely proud to have my family performing with me.

Music has been our way of staying a close family. I retired in 1990 as a middle school principal in Hickory. I have been married to my wife Edith for over 50 years and she has been a huge supporter of our music.
