About the Band

The Empty Bottle String Band specializes in playing toe-tapping, highly danceable traditional Appalachian music.  They are known for their upbeat fiddle tunes and feel-good music, with the occasional murder ballad thrown in for good measure. Their impressive stage presence is coupled with a delightfully self-effacing strength and confidence in their music. Their sound is inventive, while still staying close to the old time string band tradition of the 1930's.  They have become a festival favorite wherever they go and are one of East Tennessee's most popular old-time groups.

The band promotes the close connection between old time string band music and traditional dance.  They frequently play for contra dances and square dances, and Tyler and Stephanie frequently demonstrate clogging and flatfooting during the shows. 

Band members are:

Tyler Hughes:  banjo/banjo uke and vocals

Kristal Harman: guitar and vocals

Stephanie Jeter: autoharp/bass and vocals

Ryan Nickerson:  fiddle/mandolin
