- Hello and welcome to "Song of the Mountains".

I'm your host Tim White.

On the stage this evening we bring you

yours truly and Troublesome Hollow.

Troublesome Hollow was originally formed

in Hickory Tree, Tennessee in the mid 1970s.

The band recorded five albums between 1979 and '89

and through most of these years the band centered

on the brother duo of Donny and Garry Ollis and myself.

The Troublesome Hollow explored

the edges of bluegrass music.

Playing many standard tunes traditionally,

they also experimented with a new grass sound

back when it was not mainstream.

They performed together until 1998

when the band members went separate ways.

Although the band members always continued to be friends,

they did not pick music together from 1998

until early 2015 when Donny Ollis asked his brother, Garry,

and me to get together for some fun picking.

Didn't take too long to get together

and rekindle the old flame of Troublesome Hollow.

With a fresh album just off the press,

we bring to the stage, Tim White and Troublesome Hollow.

[audience clapping]

- Thank you.

[audience clapping]

All right thank you.

This next song we're gonna do is a song

that was written by the late Ron Greene.

Ron was a founding member of Troublesome Hollow

and Ronnie died a handful of years ago

and he wrote a killer of a song.

He wrote a lot of good songs and this is one of them.

Garry Ollis, the sharp dressed man behind me

is gonna do it for you.

[audience clapping]

- Donny and Garry can sing those poor, pitiful songs.

Can't they?

- Makes me wanna cry.

- That's 'cause we all grew up poor.

- That's right, Tim.

- That's right.

How many of y'all poor out there?

- There's a mumbling in the crowd.

- Oh come on admit it.

You're poor.

- How many is rich out there?

- No hands.

I tell you when we were growing up,

I went over Donny's house.

We just had got our driver's license.

Went over Donny and Garry's house

and they you know we'd been out and about.

Took 'em home and next morning was Saturday.

I showed up pretty early.

And when I rode up there,

somebody rolled their house with toilet paper.

You seen that before haven't you?

Toilet paper across the yard, sidewalk,

in the bushes, across the top of the house.

I kind of snickered as I went up the door

and I knocked on that door.

Donny and Garry come to the door two cups of coffee.

Looked out there and saw all

that toilet paper across the trees,

into the bushes, across the sidewalk, and the yard.

They had never seen anything like that out in Hickory Tree.

They went tearing back through the house.

Mama, mama, get up.

Their mama come tearing out of the backroom.

She said what's wrong, boys?

Donny said I don't know, mama,

but I think the septic tank blowed up.

[audience laughing]

- Lot of truth in that.

[bluegrass music]

We gonna get Garry up here to sing another one for you.

I don't know about you all,

but we're a little bit partial

to that big high lonesome tenor of his.

This is one we put on our latest CD.

One called "Over in the Graveyard".

- Here we go.

["Over in the Graveyard" by Troublesome Hollow]

♪ Over yonder in the graveyard

♪ Where the wild, wild flowers grow ♪

♪ There they laid my own true lover ♪

♪ She'd gone from me, forever more ♪

♪ Fairer than the sweetest flower ♪

♪ Restless as the wildest way

♪ Pored in with love deep as a ocean ♪

♪ This is the girl that I did win ♪

♪ I left her there back in the mountain ♪

♪ To see the world riches to gain ♪

♪ When I returned no earthy treasures ♪

♪ Could ease this heart so filled with pain ♪

♪ They saw high above the mountain ♪

♪ Beneath that little mound of clay ♪

♪ The girl that I returned to marry ♪

♪ So stand a mound of flowers did lay ♪

♪ I'll go lay you down and wonder ♪

♪ Lay aside my earthy gain

♪ All I am undone in riches

♪ Undone in sorrow I remain

♪ Undone in sorrow I remain

[audience clapping]

- Garry Ollis thank you.

- [Donny] Well who do we got up here?

- We got Leon.

- Leon Frost.

- Having fun yet?

- [Audience] Yeah.

- If you not, you better start.

It ain't gonna get no better.

Well yes it is.

Did you see that fellow that was out here

on the first song playing them?

What are those things called, Leon?

- They're shakers, ain't they?

They were shakers.

- Shakers.

Here's Leon Frost.

Give Leon a hand as he comes up here.

All right we're gonna show Leon off here on.

What are those things?

- Spoons.

- Spoons.

I knew you'd know.

[bluegrass music]

- Yeah.

[bluegrass music]

[audience clapping]

Yeah.

- Leon Frost.

[audience clapping]

- I'm a tell you a little story real quick.

I gotta be quick 'cause Tim's got me on a tight schedule.

- That's right.

- Dive in.

Well I dreamed that me, Garry and Tim all died

and went to heaven standing up there

with Saint Peter and he says boys.

He said I hope you really enjoy heaven.

He said the only thing about it is.

He says you gotta be real careful.

Says heaven's covered with ducks

and the good Lord likes a duck

better than anything in heaven.

So we agreed, went on in.

We're walking around.

Split up.

Garry went one way, I went the other,

and Tim went another way.

Well, I seen Garry coming down a sidewalk there.

- That's me.

- That's him.

Man, he had the ugliest woman that you could ever imagine.

I mean the ugliest woman you could ever imagine.

Chained to him, you know.

He got down there and I said Garry what happened to you?

- It didn't look like my wife, did it?

- No.

- Okay.

- You better be careful.

She's here.

So anyway, I said what happened to you, Garry?

He says well I stepped on a duck.

Well I got so tickled.

I stepped backwards and I stepped on a dead, lame duck.

And man you think his girl was ugly,

well I was chained to one of the ugliest women

that I ever could imagine.

Well I looked up sidewalk and here come Tim White.

That big old stupid grin on his face he's always got.

Come strolling down through there.

I mean he's strutting his stuff.

Had the prettiest little old girl

you ever laid your eyes on.

I mean she was movie star quality.

He come walking up.

I said dang, Tim.

I said what happened to you?

Little girl spoke up and says I don't know

what happened to him but I stepped on a duck.

[audience laughing]

- That ain't funny.

- Yeah it is.

- We got a good friend that has done some video work for us.

An excellent videographer and editor.

Found out not too long ago,

he's a pretty good singer and picker too.

So we invited him to be on "Songs of the Mountains".

Is that okay with y'all?

- [Audience] Yeah.

- His name's Brian Bishop from down around Bristol.

Blump a way.

Brian Bishop.

Give him a nice warm welcome.

[audience clapping]

Get in here, son.

- Where'd you find all these people at?

Thank you, Tim.

Tim, now if you've ever heard his song about the pig,

I was there for that so we kind of go way back

and there's a pig story involved.

So now you got homework.

It had a happy ending.

- Couple of days ago matter of fact.

- Thank you for letting me come.

I always say thank you to the good Lord

for letting me be here tonight.

Thank y'all for coming.

You boys ready?

- Ready.

- Hit it.

["Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain" by Willie Nelson]

♪ In the twilight glow I see her ♪

♪ Blue eyes crying in the rain

♪ And when we kissed bye and parted ♪

♪ I knew we'd never meet again

♪ And love is like a dying amber ♪

♪ Only memories remain

♪ Through the ages I'll remember ♪

♪ Blue eyes crying in the rain

♪ Some day when we meet up yonder ♪

♪ We'll stroll hand in hand again ♪

♪ Through a land that knows no parting ♪

♪ Blue eyes crying in the rain

♪ Blue eyes crying in the rain

[audience clapping]

- You know, when Tim asked me to come play with him,

he asked me what I wanted to play and I told him that.

He said that might be a little bit slow.

You're gonna kill my show, Bishop.

And I said get off my back.

No, I'm kidding.

I wanted to play that 'cause I grew up with a grandmama.

We listened to Willie Nelson and Charlie Pride

and all them so much I feel like I knew 'em personally.

So that one was for her.

She told me before she passed never stop playing

and making people smile.

So thank you for smiling but I wanted to play one

that was a little more upbeat for you, too.

Are y'all in for something a little more upbeat?

[audience clapping]

Sounded like it so let's see what we can do

with this one here.

We ready?

You ready, Tim?

Waiting on Tim.

You ever heard that song "Waiting on a Woman"?

Waiting on Tim.

I can tell some more Tim White stories if you want me to.

- I'm ready.

[audience clapping]

- Hey one more thing for I go, Tim.

I wanna say thank you to that young lady

and them three boys back there.

Love y'all.

- All right, Brian Bishop.

Let's hear for him again.

Yes sir.

[audience clapping]

Now we've got a special instrument

onstage here with us tonight.

I know.

I'm gon' turn this over to Tim

'cause Tim knows a whole lot more about it than I do.

- I just need to learn more about tuning a banjo.

Does that sound right?

Wake him up.

[audience laughing]

This fiddle that Kevin Jackson has over here

belonged to and was played by the late great Benny Sims.

I hear the hush over the crowd.

Let me tell you about Benny Sims.

Benny Sims was a fiddle player

who played with Lester Flatt and Earl Scruggs

in the late 1940s and played the first fiddle part

on the original "Foggy Mountain Breakdown".

That was the one that they used

in the "Bonnie and Clyde" movie

with Faye Dunaway and Warren Beatty.

And they did that movie in 1967 I believe,

but went back to the late 40s and got this musical piece.

Now this isn't the fiddle that Benny played on that.

I've got to hold that fiddle.

But his widow's still owns that fiddle.

She lives over in assisted living in Johnson City.

Eula Sims is her name in Johnson City, Tennessee.

And she was selling off few years

after Benny passed away some of his instruments

and this was one that Benny had and played.

There's a crack in it that he was repairing.

He did fiddle repairs.

So we'd like to take a couple of songs here

and remember our good friend, the late and great Benny Sims.

Would you give Benny Sims a big round of applause?

[audience clapping]

["Old Salty Dog Blues" by Flatt and Scruggs]

♪ Rundown slipper and a worn out shoe ♪

♪ Honey, let me be your salty dog ♪

♪ Let me be your salty dog

♪ Or I won't be your man at all ♪

♪ Honey, let me be your salty dog ♪

♪ Pulled the trigger and the gun said go ♪

♪ Shot fell over in Mexico

♪ Honey, let me be you salty dog ♪

[audience clapping]

- Good stuff.

Now I know you all can't see it out there

from where you're at.

This left handed fiddle player right here.

He's playing that fiddle upside down.

He's playing a right hand fiddle left handed.

Just what he does.

And he's very talented at it.

Kevin Jackson from up in Wallace, Virginia.

- Thank you, thank you.

[audience clapping]

- Over here on my far right.

He's from up around Bristol, Virginia also.

He's one of the Harlow boys.

Glen Harlow, if you'll give him a nice hand.

[audience clapping]

Back here on the big bass fiddle.

That's my little brother from down

around Hickory Tree, Tennessee.

He's a man of fashion tonight.

Garry Ollis.

Won't you give him a big hand.

[audience clapping]

And a banjo picker has been

with this band Troublesome Hollow.

I know it don't sound like it tonight,

but he's been with us since 1978.

I's just a baby.

Tim White.

I know you all know him and mighty proud of it.

[audience clapping]

And my name's Donny Ollis and I'm from down

in Hickory Tree, Tennessee also.

[audience clapping]

- Before we go any further, I wanna make sure

that we show off Richard Mink, a good friend of ours.

A fabulous artist.

He's here tonight shooting some photography

along with David Johnson, our good friend,

but Richard over here's a fine artist

and he donated this jacket.

Let me hold your bass.

Look at this spiffy jacket that Richard Mink

airbrushed for Garry Ollis.

Turn around.

There you go.

Garry Ollis back here in the fancy clothes.

He can write some poor, pitiful songs.

- Poor, poor, pitiful.

- Oh man.

He's happily married now but there was a run

of about 25 years we was really worried about him.

Weren't we?

- [Donny] That's a fact.

- What's that song?

If I had no bad luck, I'd have no luck at all.

That's him.

- That's me.

- So he wrote this.

Back before he was happily married.

I think I got it now.
