Ron Fine was born January 4, 1938 in Kansas City, KS. After finishing High School, he went to work as an Electrician for the Santa Fe Railroad where he retired in 1999. He met his wife, Donna in Jr. High School and they were married on June 21, 1958. They have 3 children; 2 sons and 1 daughter plus six Grandchildren and 5 Great-Grandchildren.
Ron, is blessed with a great Tenor voice and began singing when he was very young performing in school programs, etc. with help and support from a very special music teacher. He started messing around with the guitar later but didn’t do much about it until they started Square Dancing in 1968 and met some guys who played Bluegrass. He loved it and the rest is history so they say. He started playing in a Bluegrass band, “The Joy Bells” in 1980 and stayed with them until 1990. He then started playing with another Bluegrass band “The Wooden Nickel” in 1992 until 2000. He recorded several albums, tapes and CD’s with both bands and was very proud that both bands won awards from the Midwest Bluegrass Association.
Ron and Donna still attend several Bluegrass festivals each year and for the past 25 years have attended the National Bluegrass Convention in Nashville, Tn.
Ron is always a very welcome and well received guest with our band.
