For many decades, the enthusiastic outstanding McLain family band has been performing, and spreading the wonderful traditions of bluegrass and Appalachian folk music. Founded by their father Raymond K. McLain, the family group has made 14 international tours under the sponsorship of the US State Department.
In addition to concerts at the Grand Ole Opry, they also played with symphony orchestras featuring works with McLain themes. They have also appeared at Carnegie Hall and at the Lincoln Center. Raymond W. McLain leads the band today and is most likely the best known outside of the family band.
