My name is Allen Tolbert. I have a Bluegrass/Jazz acoustic string band called The Allen Tolbert Unit. I have been performing, teaching and recording for 20 years as a guitar and mandolin player, as well as Bluegrass vocalist when needed. I have toured professionally in the southeast for nearly 20 years. As a member of Birmingham-based Glenn Tolbert & Company for 17 years, I have made hundreds of appearances ranging from festivals, weddings, churches and private parties to radio and television appearances. I appeared as a featured guest on a special youth edition of the nationally-syndicated radio broadcast of the Woodsongs Old-Time Radio Hour, as well as performing numerous times on the Country Boy Eddie TV Show with many guests including Hank Williams III. My festival appearances include Horse Pens 40, opening for such acts as Ricky Skaggs, The Del McCoury Band, Peter Rowan, Jerry Douglas, Blue Highway and The Whites. I also performed at the Foggy Hollow Bluegrass Gatherin' nearly 20 different times, opening for acts such as Alison Krauss and Union Station, The Tony Rice Unit, J.D. Crowe and the New South, IIIrd Tyme Out, the Osborne Brothers and Claire Lynch. My debut solo CD is scheduled to be released soon. I also perform as a solo artist and would be honored to provide quality entertainment for your special event. I have an extremely wide range of material that I play and will work with you to find whatever style, songs and mood fit your event. As you can see from the reviews my band has right here on Gigmasters, I am affordable, fair and easy to work with. Be it acoustic guitar, mandolin, some Bluegrass/Country-tinged vocals or some of all of them, I will do whatever it takes to make your event as successful as is possible.
