The Time Travelers

 

The Time Travelers provide a harmonious blend of gospel, folk and traditional music.

Sibyl MacKenzie had a completely unmusical life until about seven years ago. At that time she was living on a boat, and learned to play the guitar a little bit during rainy weather. On returning to dry land and moving to West Virginia, she heard a dobro for the first time, and fell in love. She sings soprano and plays the dobro in the Time Travelers.

Pamela Francis is a native of southern WV. She has sung in several church choirs in the area but until the Time Travelers, had never been a part of a group. She began playing the mandolin about 3 years ago, taking lessons at Potomac Music in Romney. A graduate of Allegany College and WVU, she is employed as an RN with Hospice of the Panhandle.

Michael Hasty comes from a family that traces its musical lineage back to Scotland, where they were the pipers for the Graham clan. He began his own musical career as a teenager, playing drums in garage bands. In the ‘70s, he performed as a solo singer/songwriter in clubs in San Francisco. In 1985, he organized the folk rock group, Michael & the Archangels, which played in the Washington DC area until he moved to West Virginia in 1994. Since then he has played drums in rock bands with Francis and KC Chilcoat, and began playing guitar and harmonica with the Time Travelers in 2005.

Joe Crawford was raised in the mountains of western North Carolina where he learned to sing in his church choir and played guitar as a teenager. In college, in the 60’s, he was in a four-part harmony folk group where he sang both lead and tenor and played rhythm guitar. After a long hiatus from music, he joined a country western band out of Boulder, Colorado where, for several years, he played banjo and sang bass. He joined the Time Travelers in 2005, playing the banjo and rhythm guitar.

Chuck Sherry, playing bass and guitar, sometimes joins the group.
