The Kollard Kings specialize in old-time string band songs from Charlotte’s surprising heyday as a country music recording center back in the 1930s, the roots of what would become “bluegrass.”

The Kollard Kings reside in and around the greater Charlotte – Chester metroplex, the best of both Carolinas. We’d be honored to play for your pig-pickin’, parade, garage-door opening or just about any other event.
