The Kidd Brothers Bluegrass Band

The Kidd Brothers Bluegrass Band

The Kidd Brothers Bluegrass Group was formed when Aaron and Andrew Kidd, both students at Hurricane Middle School in Putnam County, west Virginia, learned that 6th grade English teacher Markel Fertig played the stand up bass. The trio began to regularly jam together and were soon joined by mandolin player Willard Reynolds of Milton, West Virginia.
The group soon built up a following, based on classic Bluegrass & Gospel songs they played so well. They have had the pleasure of playing at numerous events, including several local fairs and festivals, churches, live radio broadcasts and various band contests. They have produced two studios CD,s as well as this live DVD music video.

Andrew Kidd was placed 4th in the adult division of bluegrass banjo at West Virginia Vandalia Gathering in 2007 and took 2nd place there in 2008.
He also took 1st at the Clay County Golden Delicious apple Festival in 2007. Andrew has played the banjo since age 8. Older brother Aaron plays guitar and offers vocals, playing guitar since age 10.
Both Markel Fertig and Willard Reynolds are seasoned professionals, having played with well known groups all over the country and having shared the stage with many well known bluegrass icons. It’s the right combination of youth and experience that makes this group so unique.
The group accredits their success to their faith in God, and they continue to thank Him for their success and talent. They can be reached on the Internet at http://kiddbrothers.tripod.com.
