Born and raised in West Virginia, Johnny Staats caught the bluegrass bug early in his life with his mother playing piano, his father on the guitar, and his sister on the banjo. Known primarily as a mandolin player, Johnny is also proficient on guitar and fiddle. Johnny has made appearances on NBC’s TODAY Show, CBS Evening News with Dan Rather, and the Grand Ole Opry. Staats continues to head out every day in his big brown UPS truck and still manages to fulfill a demanding schedule of musical engagements.
