Trevor Hammons

Trevor Lee Hammons

Trevor lives in Pocahontas Co. West Virginia where he continues to pass on the “old time music” and traditions of the famous Hammons Family. He is the great-grandson of musician, Lee Hammons. Trevor is an award- winning banjo and fiddle player.

He started lessons when he was eight years old with Pam Lund of Woodrow. She played with the Hammons and learned from them in the 70’s. Trevor has played with bands previously, but finds the stories and history of this music needs to be presented in a different way, which shows the importance of the tradition and what it really means.

He has a show that explains this and wonderful music to accompany and showcase his legacy. He mastered the banjo, playing in the Appalachian Old Time technique familiar to his great-Grandfather Lee and his friends during the 1800’s and early 1900’s. As a youth, Trevor took many awards for adult categories with his unique style and musical abilities, playing an eerie and haunting style as performed by his Great-grandfather Lee. He has placed in Vandalia, Clifftop, Galax, VA, Monterey, VA, and more!

If you love the banjo and old time music you must catch him playing!

Three years ago, Trevor picked up the fiddle and began playing, again placing in contest in WV and surrounding states. He continues to learn from great musicians such as Pam Lund, Dave Bing, Henry Barnes, and John Blissard on the fiddle. He has studied with Tim Bing, Ron Mullennex, Dwight Diller, and so many more wonderful musicians. Trevor teaches music lessons at the Pocahontas Co. Library and Marlinton Wellness Center.
