Born Old is Paul Gartner (banjo, guitar & vocals) and Doug Van Gundy (fiddle, guitar, mandolin & vocals).  Recently guests on National Public Radio’s Mountain Stage program, they perform regularly throughout West Virginia and surrounding states, and have been featured at both the Appalachian String Band Festival (Clifftop) and Vandalia Gathering annually for over a decade. They have also taught at many festivals and music camps, including the Augusta Heritage and Allegheny Echoes workshops.

The duo plays traditional old-time music from West Virginia, as well as early country classics from the great artists of the 78 rpm era, including The Carter Family, Charlie Poole, Uncle Dave Macon, and others.

Gartner and Van Gundy have been making music together for 15 years, giving performances that are traditional and informative without sacrificing a very high energy, raucous, fun factor.
