(Vocal/instrumental group, 1966–present)
Buck White (vocals, mandolin, b. 1930) was an Arkansas pipe fitter in 1966 when he formed a family bluegrass band with his wife Pat and their daughters Sharon (vocals, guitar, b. 1953) and Cheryl (vocals, bass, b. 1955). Buck’s Monroe-like mandolin and his daughters’ pretty harmony soon made The Whites a popular fixture on the bluegrass circuit. Sharon married Ricky Skaggs, who helped The Whites score several hit singles with a country/bluegrass fusion similar to his own.
