Bluegrass band with local ties performs in NashvillePublished 12:46pm Monday, July 30, 2012
Other band members are Hannah Black, fiddle; Joshua Black, rhythm guitar; Collins Miller, banjo; and Jacob Moody, bass. All are from Arab and take music lessons from Tina Miller, also of Arab.
Jacob’s interest in music comes naturally. His father, Gary Briscoe, is a guitar player who organized a family band that included Jacob’s two sisters and older brother.
“I guess my interest in music began with my dad,” Jacob said. He plays his guitar almost every day and I do the same with my fiddle.”
Jacob, 16, began fiddle lessons five years ago and joined the Hartselle Junior High School band in the sixth grade. He now plays the trombone for the Hartselle High School band.
Freshwater Creek is available for bookings, with John Miller serving as booking agent: 1-256-656-1801.
In addition to his music, Jacob, a junior, is an “A” student who is pursuing an advanced placement diploma. He is also a Star Scout who is working on the Eagle rank.
