Greg “Spanky” Moore picked up his first fiddle at the age of 5, and you’d have been shocked to run into him a day since without it in his hands. He instantly developed a love and respect for the fiddle and bluegrass music. Greg dedicates his success to his Grandpa Moore. His Grandpa not only taught him how to play but also introduced a young Greg to the live music genre by taking him to festivals starting when he was only one year old. It’s no wonder the bluegrass bug bit Greg Moore and bit him hard!
Greg has had a very full and honorable career so far. Playing on stage with some of the most respected names in the business, including Dave Evans and Riverbend, Tony Holt and The Wildwood Boys, Melvin Goins, Remington Ryde, The James King Band Ernie Evans, and Junior Sisk & Rambler’s Choice.
This past year has been full of new experiences for Greg, showcasing his skill, motivation and drive for consistently trying to better himself as a musician. Not only did he record and release his first full length project, out this past July titled 'Hollow Box Rhythm', but he also earned a nomination for SPBGMA Fiddle Player of the year.
Greg and his wife, Deena, whom he also calls his best friend, enjoy spending time together outdoors, fishing, with family and friends, and if you ask him he will tell you, he intends to play traditional bluegrass fiddle forever!
