Reno & Harrell

Reno & Harrell

Reno & Harrell: Ron Spears, Dale Reno, Mitch Harrell, Don Wayne Reno, For most bluegrass fans, the name “Reno and Harrell” instantly brings to mind the 1960s band fronted by bluegrass legends Don Reno and Bill Harrell. However, some folks may have caught that name popping up once again at bluegrass shows, such as the recent Wide Open Bluegrass street festival in Raleigh, and wondered who exactly was going to show up onstage.

No, it’s not some sort of tribute band – not exactly. Instead, the 2010s version of Reno and Harrell is Dale and Don Wayne Reno with Mitch Harrell, longtime musicians and friends since childhood who are following in their fathers’ footsteps. They’ve recently released their first album, Reno Bound, featuring classic covers from Don and Bill as well as a few newer tunes.Wells.
The new, 21st century version of Reno & Harrell, consisting of Don Reno’s sons Don Wayne and Dale, along with Bill Harrell’s son Mitch, have released a first music video.

The song is A Dollar Down, which will be included in their debut album for the John Boy & Billy label, expected later this summer. It was recorded in 1967 by the original Reno and Harrell on their Yellow Pages album, and performed as something of a novelty song on stage.

Joining Mitch on guitar and the Reno boys on banjo and mandolin, are Ron Spears on bass and Robbie Wells on fiddle.
