Album Notes
‘True Life Travelers’ Create an Acoustic Jam of American Music
“Bluegrass Unlimited” magazine said True Life Travelers: have “…one foot planted in bluegrass and the other in fun!”
Mary Jo and Charlie Leet join forces and voices with Linda and Chris Tatarian to perform as the
‘True Life Travelers’ (TLT). TLT dips into bluegrass, gospel and traditional American music with powerful vocal harmonies and an entertaining style.

Charlie (upright bass) and Mary Jo (guitar), bring over 20 years of experience performing around the world with the Dry Branch Fire Squad bluegrass band and have recorded many projects with that band on niche label Rounder Records. They live in Patrick Springs, VA on “The Crooked Road – Virginia’s Heritage Music Trail” and have recorded two independent music projects. Working as a duet or in concert with fine musicians, this pair enjoys sharing their American Acoustic Music experience with the live audience!

Always working to engage the audience and hailing originally from Milaca, MN, Linda plays 5-string banjo and brings strong lead and harmony vocals to the mix. Chris supplies tasteful guitar, melodic harmonica and sings harmony to round out TLT’s powerful trios and quartets. Chris and Linda, Troy, Ohio residents, are the “roots” of Rum River Blend and since 1992 they have performed a blend of traditional bluegrass, folk, gospel and children's songs.

In 2007, True Life Travelers released “Life Goes On”, a CD project of powerful gospel music that includes some well-loved and some long-lost gospel gems. TLT released the group’s first recorded project in 2006, “Seasonal Life”. This is a CD full of traditional holiday songs with strong vocals, beautiful harmonies and the cheery acoustic sounds of the holiday season.

The Travelers are equally at home with Saturday Night as well as Sunday Morning music and a 2010 CD and DVD project “The Pickin’ Ranch” is full of well-loved American tunes from the public domain.
