The Tenos

                                                                                               a family bluegrass band from east tennessee     


At nine years old, our son, Andy, decided he wanted to play the banjo. This was the beginning of a new and exciting adventure for the whole family. He inspired us all to learn a new instrument and play bluegrass music together for fun and enjoyment!  We played our first public performance on July 4th, 2012, at the Museum of Appalachia in Norris, Tennessee! Since then, we've played at Rocky Branch Community Center, Dollywood’s BBQ & Bluegrass Festival, Museum of Appalachia’s Fall Homecoming, David West's Ciderville Farm and Home Show, TV and radio shows, various conventions, festivals, service groups, many churches, and a variety of other venues.  We recorded our first CD several years ago and we are currently in the process of recording another!  Our music consists of traditional bluegrass, old-time, and gospel songs with close family harmonies that you will love and enjoy!
