Lennie Centers: Guitar, Harmony and lead vocals. A native of Eastern Kentucky, Lennie Centers was raised on bluegrass music. His father, the late Roy Lee Centers, was lead singer for Ralph Stanley and The Clinch Mountain Boys for many years. Lennie traveled with his father until his untimely death. This was where Lenny was first inspired by music. His Uncle Fred Spencer was the catalyst who would ultimately inspire Lennie to play guitar. Lennie's first professional work was traveling every weekend with The Goins Brothers. He soon formed the band Silver Creek with Barry & Bill Crabtree, Chris Miller, Porter Corume. Silver Creek is often credited for a new bluegrass sound heard today. In 1992 Lenny toured with Timmy Cline Band. Lennie, along with his son Roy, Scott Napier, Gary Skaggs, Keith Prater and Mike Creech came together to form Vintage Sound. Opening for Ricky Skaggs, they were the first band to ever play the stage at Mountain Arts Center in Prestonsburg, KY. in 2002. He and son Roy also toured with Joe Isaacs. Lennie also did a nine day tour in Dublin, Ireland. Lennie has shared the stage with Ricky Skaggs, Marty Stewart, Allison Brown, Stewart Duncan, the last Keith Whitley, Lester Flat and many others.
Inspired by the music of the mountain sound of Ralph Stanley, Clarence White, Tony Rice, with the drive of Elvis Presley and the style of the Beatles, Lennie's style is constantly evolving.
