First they were just brothers, watching at the feet of their talented bluegrass father and uncle, who toured as The Bluegrass Brothers. As they grew into young men, they became Bluegrass Brothers as well. And now Steven and Donald Dowdy are The Dowdy Brothers, as they will be known professionally. 

These two have been singing together since they could form the words to songs they had heard their daddy sing.

Donald and Steven have appeared on several Bluegrass Brothers albums, with Donald particularly noted for his soulful renditions of mountain ballads. Their new venture will retain the hard-driving, traditional mountain bluegrass sound that has been a Dowdy trademark, with Steven playing the aggressive upright bass style that Victor exemplified, and Donald playing “wronghanded” mandolin.

Joining them will be Tommy Conner of the legendary Conner Family, who have long associations with the Dowdys, Mason Fisher on banjo, and Cody Bauer on fiddle. Bluegrass lovers have long appreciated that special impact that comes with sibling harmony. 

“The Dowdy Brothers would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their continued love and support, and they look forward to playing music and seeing their friends and fans in the near future!”
