The Goodson Boys at the Ronceverte River Festival

June 12, 2015 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm


THE GOODSON BOYS come from a musical family in southern WV. Mom and Dad had a gospel band with 2 older brothers.Willie and Randy were singing in church at a very young age. In 1988 they started playing music for themselves. Willie got an acoustic guitar, and in that year Randy got a Telecaster electric guitar… and the Goodson Boys would start their journey. We have played a lot of different gigs since then, with a lot of different people, doing a lot of different styles. Our roots are most definitely the old country and gospel style, but we play a very wide variety of music depending on the venue. Willie and Randy don’t only play a duo act – their oldest brother Mike has also teamed up with them and is playing a lot shows. We have also added a fiddle player to our show, Jerry Wood, and drummer Billy Ayers is playing some of our bigger gigs this summer.

The Ronceverte River Festival is held the second weekend in June each year. Home of The Great Rubber Ducky Race! A $5 ticket can win you $10,000 or $14,000 towards the purchase of a new vehicle @ Bill Lewis Motors!! Free entertainment is in the Amphitheatre.
