HillBilly Fever

HillBilly Fever is a hard driving traditional bluegrass band made of seasoned musicians with varied backgrounds.

Mark Krider, banjo. Mark has deep bluegrass roots from the North Carolina mountains where he grew up listening to and pickin’ bluegrass. “You might say it’s in the water there.” Working hard to keep the traditional sound going, Mark formed HillBilly Fever.  The band has performed from the east to the west coast. Mark has shared the stage with The Osborne Brothers, The Country Gentleman, The Lewis Family, and Blue Highway.

Randy Pasley, dobro,  lead, tenor, baritone and bass. Randy’s style of dobro playing is topnotch. He has performed with Doc Watson, Wyane Henderson, and Tim O’Bryant just to name a few. Randy also won first place dobro at The Galax Old TIME fiddlers convention. Randy and his wife reside in Ogden, Utah.

Tucker McCandless, lead singer and guitar player, plus he plays all the instruments well. Tucker comes to us from Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. Mark and Tucker have been making music off and on for the last 25 years. Tucker has such a great bluegrass voice – he’s just a pleasure to listen to and he brings out that “High Lonesome sound.” Tucker also performed at DollyWood for almost 10 years.

Hudson Bosworth, lead guitar and vocals. Hudson studied guitar with Wyatt Rice for four years at ETSU in Johnson City, Tennesee Hudson has developed into one of the best flat pickers around, and makes his home in Ogden, Utah along with his 1986 Santa Cruz guitar.

Billy Parker, mandolin, tenor, lead, and baritone vocals. Billy is known all over the west coast as “The Mandolin Man.” Billy comes from the east coast and makes his home in Chandler, Arizona. Billy has been recording and playing bluegrass for many years. He is one of the very top performers you will get a chance to hear.
