"Trevor has been one of my favorite banjo players for 25 years. He is such a talented musician! He can play almost any style on the banjo and that's a real asset to our sound." ~~~ Shannon
Trevor Watson came from a musical family indoctrinated into the world of bluegrass at an early age. He began playing banjo at age 8 when his dad built him a small-scale banjo. After graduating from Virginia Tech, Trevor became a cast member at The Carolina Opry in Myrtle Beach. In 2003, he joined Lou Reid & Carolina, where he is still a band member. He also filled in with the Seldom Scene for about six months before Ben Eldridge officially retired.
Trevor and Shannon have been friends since their college days and continue to enjoy playing music together. He and Shannon played a 4-year stint together with Lou Reid's band. Trevor has also recorded and played several shows with Shannon since he started his solo career.
