Julie Brown grew up in Angier playing music in the school bands and tinkering with the guitar a little. Her family travelled to bluegrass festivals for weekend vacations and that put the music in her blood. In 1989 after helping her dad try to figure out some things on his banjo decided she needed one of those too. That was all it took. She played banjo for years after that and also took up classical upright bass in the mid 90’s, later using the knowledge to play bluegrass bass in the late ‘90’s. Julie has played with several North Carolina bands throughout the years including being a founding member of the Outliers and currently is the bassist and with Hindsight Bluegrass.
