My name is Steve Kilby. I live and teach Flatpicking in Mouth of Wilson VA. I was born in 1954 in North Wilkesboro NC. I've played in several NC bluegrass bands over the years. My wife, Penny Kilby and I now play together. We both have Henderson and Edmonds handmade guitars and we love old Martins.
