Ron Brickey - Ron lives in Meadowview, although he is originally from Saltville, VA. The Smyth County Jam is glad to have Ron with us any time he wants to come by. He plays several instruments: mandolin, banjo, guitar and bass. At one time he was with a band called " The 107 Connection"; this was several years ago; now days Ron says he likes to go around and just jam with other musicians. Larry Hogston's mother is Ron's sister, so we have a talented family here. Ron has worked for General Dynamics for twenty-five years. His musical hero is the very popular Larry Sparks.
