The Terry Family Band

It began with a tiny violin presented to oldest son James, then 3 ½ years old, a gift from father to son. The father began playing his guitar for the sons; teaching lyrics to popular songs and having them sing their favorite song "Dead Skunk in the Middle of the Road" by Loudon Wainwright III which they frequently sang at the UC Alumni Camp Lair of the Bear. Terry Family is comprised of father Jim and sons Clark and Graham, all former Music Directors at the Lair.
