Ed Snodderly has made what he describes as "new hillbilly music" all his life. He has taken the folk, country and bluegrass he absorbed from his Northeast Tennessee mountain family and intermixed other musical influences he heard on the radio, including rock 'n' roll, soul and pop. www.musiconthesquare.com
