About the artists
The Shady Grove Band was a bluegrass quartet that played both traditional and
newgrass. They were founded in the early '80s by singer/guitarist Jerry Brown in
Chapel Hill, North Carolina.
Other band members included singer/songwriter/bassist Adael Shinn, who was
born and raised in Kannapolis, North Carolina and got her start playing bass with
such artists as Earl Scruggs and John Hartford; Charles Pettee, who played
mandolin and also wrote many of the songs; and banjo picker Jason Shore.
Between 1985 and 1994, Shady Grove recorded four albums including The
Chapel Hillbilly Way.
