Myself. Various recording attempts from the time I was learning to play the 5 string banjo until I played country music with a small group in a venue we rented on Saturday nights in Reno Texas. Someone picked the name "Country Critters" for our little group, which consisted of Wade Seals on vocals and Rhythm Guitar, Mary Byford on fiddle, Darlene Pierce on Bass Guitar, and myself on Banjo. All of the "live" recordings were done on a small cassette recorder by Mary's husband Don Byford. On one number, Darlene's husband Jerry did the vocals. A list of the recordings appears at the end of this page. Also, KMP=Kyle on Bass-Mike on 12 String Guitar_Paul on 6 string guitar and Vocals.
