Sam Gleaves & Tyler Hughes play old time country music and newly written songs from the mountains.  Both natives of southwest Virginia, Sam and Tyler learned their craft from the finest traditional musicians of the region and in the music programs at Berea College and East Tennessee State University. Sam and Tyler’s programs feature fiddle and banjo hoedowns, close mountain harmonies, stories of 

all kinds, Carter Family-inspired autoharp and guitar, country gospel songs, lonesome ballads and flatfooting, the percussive dancing of the Appalachians. As a duo, Sam and Tyler also perform contemporary songs that tell stories from today's Appalachia, which can be heard on Sam's critically acclaimed album Ain't We Brothers. Sam and Tyler have performed at many venues throughout the eastern United States and on programs such as West Virginia Public Radio's Mountain Stage and Lexington, Kentucky's Red Barn Radio (broadcast on Kentucky Educational Television). In June 2017, Sam and Tyler released their first recording, produced by Grammy winner Cathy Fink, and it has been reviewed by No Depression, The Bluegrass Situation, Exclaim! and other media outlets. Folk singer and songwriter John McCutcheon 

says this new recording holds “heart-stopping anthems to everything that is the best in Appalachia and in each of us.”
