Jay Round

Grandpa Jones/HeeHaw, The Missing Lynx, 13th Hour (Bass)

Jay Round started learning the guitar when he was 4 years old and could play a number of stringed instruments before he was 10. Around 1970 he began his professional music career, and it was at the Arkansas Folk Festival in the early 70’s where Jay met Grand Ole Opry star Grandpa Jones who took a liking to Jay’s upright bass playing. Grandpa Jones invited Jay to Nashville in October 1973 during the taping of Hee-Haw and hired him to play bass with his band throughout the latter half of the 1970’s. Jay recorded his first record album using the hammered dulcimer in 1974, and three others followed. During this time Jay was also the opening act for several Nashville stars including Hank Snow, Ernest Tubb, Crystal Gayle, Little Jimmy Dickens, and Dotty West throughout the United States and Canada. In 1984-85 the United States Department of Defense hired Jay to join the band Trans-Mason-Dixon Interplanetary Pickers for an extended concert tour of military sites throughout Asia, northern Africa, and Europe. From the mid 80’s to the mid 90’s Jay became more involved with audio production, working the sound system for such well known acts as the Marshall Tucker Band, Captain and Tenille, Neil Sedaka, Frankie Valle and the Four Seasons, and many others.
