Pierceton Hobbs is a multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, and devotee to Appalachian Mountain-Music and Traditions.  Born in Wise County, VA and raised in his native Dickenson County, VA, the historic coalfield county that gave rise to Dr. Ralph Stanley and his brother Carter, Hobbs is no stranger to the mountains that shaped their repertoire.  His songwriting has been described as like peering into a two-way mirror, taking a hard look at yourself as well as the dark reality on the other side and coming to a real, more complex conclusion on life.
