Ry grew up in Athens, Ohio. While raised around heaps of old-time, he spent most of his teenage years attempting to escape the music of his parents, experimenting with a wide range of instruments and genres. Old-time finally and brutally took hold of him in 2014 when he started playing fiddle. Since 2016, he has lived in Leipzig, Germany, and given the region’s lack of traditional guitar and banjo players, his style has migrated from old-time to old-timey, playing within his means and doing his best to stay true to the spirit of the music he loves (and misses) so dearly.
