Byron Berline Band
Byron Berline’s early career included playing fiddle with bluegrass legends such as Bill Monroe, Dillard and Clark and Country Gazette. After moving to Los Angeles in 1969, he soon became one of the most popular fiddlers in the music business. His long list of performing and recording credits includes The Rolling Stones, The Eagles, The Band, The Byrds, Elton John, Alabama, Mary Chapin Carpenter, The Flying Burrito Brothers, Rod Stewart, John Denver, Earl Scruggs, Emmylou Harris, Tammy Wynette, Mason Williams, Bob Dylan, Willie Nelson and Vince Gill. He also has extensive television and movie sound track credits and has appeared in Star Trek, Blaze, Back to the Future III, and Basic Instinct.
Berline has recorded seven solo albums including his highly acclaimed “FIDDLE & A SONG” with guest performances from Vince Gill, Mason Williams, Earl Scruggs and Bill Monroe. In 1996 the album was nominated for two Grammy awards, ‘Best Album of the Year’ and ‘ Best Song of the Year’.
In 1995 Byron returned to his home state of Oklahoma where he opened a Fiddle Shop in the town of Guthrie, for the purpose of “visiting, trading and jamming” with folks who enjoy their music. As a natural progression a band was formed to entertain regularly in the Music Hall above the Fiddle Shop. The Byron Berline Band found themselves in great demand around the state, as well as surrounding states, and have extended their music through Europe.
