Leroy Troy

Leroy Troy (May 23, 1966) is an old-time banjo player from Goodlettsville, Tennessee. His banjo style is the clawhammer or frailing style, distinct from more commonly found Scruggs style banjo playing in modern bluegrass. He often performs humorous or comedy songs from the old-time music genre, with fine fiddling and excellent harmony singing by Lester and son Mike Armistead. Troy often uses a washboard with various sound making devices affixed to it. The "Bicycle Wreck" song is often played by Troy on the washboard, accompanied by the TMJB. Major musical influence attributed to Uncle Dave Macon and others taught by him. Troy debuted on the Grand Ole Opry in 1988 and was the National Old-Time Banjo Champion in 1996.[1]

Troy is known as "the Tennessee Slicker" and The Sultain of Goodlettsville and plays with the Tennessee Mafia Jugband and Marty Stuart, appearing weekly on The Marty Stuart show on RFD-TV. [2]
