Full Moon Jam: Duty Free
Duty Free is a bluegrass band based in Bristol, Tennessee. Members of the band are Bobby Love, Charlie Powers, Rick Powers, Hal Boyd, and Tim Laughlin. Bobby plays mandolin and demonstrates his versatility as a musician by singing both lead and harmony. He’s a songwriter as well who has written several tunes performed by the group. Charlie plays both lead and rhythm guitar and sings lead and harmony. Rick plays banjo in the traditional Scruggs style and also lends his vocal talent to the band. Hal Boyd anchors the group’s rhythm with his double bass playing and provides the baritone harmony — as well as lead and bass vocals — on many of Duty Free’s tunes. Tim Laughlin, long noted in bluegrass circles for his musical talent, plays fiddle for the band.
