Congratulations John and Ashlynn!

John Bryan, the most recent member of The Grascals, was wed this past Saturday, August 12, 2017, to Ashlynn Hill in a lovely, late afternoon ceremony at Sterling’s Pond in Deep Gap, NC.

The couple exchanged vows on a hilltop under a large maple tree, with their beloved Blue Ridge Mountains serving as the backdrop. The wedding was attended by family and friends with emotions running high, as all wished the newlyweds good luck in their future.

Ashlynn and John are honeymooning now in Longboat Key on the Gulf Coast of Florida, and will return to live in Boone, NC where Ashlynn serves as an elementary school teacher. John says that his bride doesn’t play or sing, but loves bluegrass as much as anyone!

Congratulations and best wishes to John and Ashlynn.

    Would like to post the passing of Jack D. Mayes on July 6, 3017 at OSU Ross Heart Hospital. In the late 1970s and early 80s, Jack took a Bluegrass band named “Lower Forty Grass” from Alabama to 47 states and Canada, playing at places where Bluegrass had never been. LFG played military bases across the U.S. from West Point to the Air Force Acadamy in Colorado. They fronted for many Nashville notables including George Jones. They were the first Bluegrass band to play at the amphitheater at Mount Rushmore. Last year three former members of his band joined with Jack and his son Roy in a reunion concert for Reverend Jack’s church, Salem Community Church in West Columbia, WV. where he had preached for several years. Jack contributed greatly to making Bluegrass music accepted in different venues than was customary. He will be missed by his family and friends.
