40 Years together singing and performing traditional bluegrass. Josh and Wayne Crowe bring their best recording to-date to the table as the brother harmonies soar, delivering that sound that fans have loved for ""Forty Years.

With Josh Crowe on guitar, and Wayne Crowe on bass, the Crowe Brothers’ music career has spanned more than four decades and a dozen recording projects. Growing up in Clayton, Georgia, Josh and Wayne began playing music as boys with their dad, Junior Crowe, and with various local bands playing bluegrass and gospel. In 1975, they teamed up with Raymond Fairchild and worked the bluegrass festival circuit and traveling the country with him full-time for the next 15 years, and relocated to Maggie Valley, NC. Over the years of their career, the Crowe Brothers have made notable appearances on the Grand Ole Opry and at the Library of Congress, as well as numerous National TV show performances, including the Bluegrass Spectacular, Fire on the Mountain, Nashville Now, I-40 Pickin’ at the Paradise, and American Music Shop.
