Leroy Troy is a banjo player from Goodlettsville, Tennessee. His banjo style is the clawhammer or frailing style, distinct from more commonly found Scruggs style banjo playing in modern bluegrass. He often performs humorous or comedy songs from the old-time music genre. He debuted on the Grand Ole Opry in 1988 and was the National Old-Time Banjo Champion in 1996.
Popular Tyre is collaboration between two musical stalwarts that have risen from the dark days of the cold war, 20 years of Tory Britain, Top Of The Pops, and Adrian Blunt. They are a new wave of songwriters, DJs and producers that shake a stick at anything formatted, pigeon holed and generic.
