The Slate Mountain Ramblers is a family old-time band from Mt. Airy, NC.  They formerly lived in Ararat, VA, a small community at the foot of the Blue Ridge Mountains.   For many years, Richard Bowman, his wife, Barbara, and their daughter Marsha, have spent weekends playing music.  Richard plays fiddle, Barbara the bass and Marsha plays claw-hammer banjo.  The band has a winning tradition by winning and placing at fiddler’s conventions they have attended throughout the years.  Richard, on fiddle, and Marsha, on claw-hammer banjo, have received many individual awards.  The Slate Mountain Ramblers play for shows, dances, family and community gatherings, benefits and compete at fiddler’s conventions throughout the year.  They have played internationally at the Austrian Alps Performing Arts Festival and in Gainsborough, England for the Friends of American Old Time Music and Dance Festival.
