About ETSU’s Old Time Pride Band
Founded in 1982, ETSU has the oldest established roots-music studies program at any four-year institution. Each year, the Bluegrass, Old-Time and Country Music Studies program fields its own band that plays and tours throughout the region. This year, the group focused on the historic Johnson City Sessions from country music’s infancy; songs from these sessions make up the entirety of the band’s set.

Instructor/Fiddle: Roy Andrade
Guitar: Kristi Goldade
Mandolin: Cameron Ragsdale
Banjo: Corbin Hayslett
