Jim and Lynna Woolsey will perform live at the Mitchell Opera House on November 2nd at 7:00 p.m. After performing together for nearly three decades, Jim and Lynna finally decided it was time to make a professional CD with professional musicians. They called Randy Kohrs and the rest is history. Randy not only produced/engineered, but also play resonator guitar & sang harmony on this CD. Mike Sumner co-produced and played banjo. Clay Hess added great mandolin tracks, Mark Fain added an awesome upright bass track, and Tim Crouch outstanding fiddle tracks. “It’s been a lifelong dream to produce an album of our original material,” said Jim.
Born into a family of musicians, Jim began playing with a popular local band The Patoka Valley Boys when he was just fifteen years old. Soon after, he and Lynna met and married, she also started playing and singing in the same band. In 1979, a documentary was made about the band and is still posted on folkstream.net.

Both Jim and Lynna have won various bluegrass awards for Old Time Vocals, Guitar, Mandolin as well as many band titles. In 2002 and 2003, our band Fields of Home, won first place in the Indiana Pickling and Fiddling Contest.
