About Taylor Farley and Blue Rock
Taylor Farley, Jr. has been playing the 5-string banjo since the age of ten, after first hearing Earl Scruggs play "Foggy Mountain Breakdown" on the radio broadcast of the Grand Ole Opry. That was a long time ago down in Newport, Kentucky, and now he has blended his unique style of pickin' with almost every genre available. Taylor has performed in concert with some of the most well-respected names in music; The Charlie Daniels Band, The Earl Scruggs Revue and Willie Nelson, just to name a few. He has performed at "A Taste of Chicago," Cincinnati's "Riverfest" and "Tall Stacks" events, as well as Stone Mountain Park near Atlanta and all the old country music clubs of Nashville. In 2000, he won the Cammy Award for "Best Folk/Bluegrass Instrumentalist". He leads a five piece group known as Blue Rock, which combines Bluegrass, Classic Rock, Blues, Folk, Gospel, and just about anything else you can throw at them.
