Raised in the Cincinnati area with a background of classical music, Kitty McIntyre started both piano and violin in grade school. She played in the school orchestra and the Cincinnati Youth Symphony through high school. In the early 1980's her Andy introduced Kitty to the bluegrass sound and she practiced until she could join Cincinnati's premier bluegrass band: Vernon McIntyre's Appalachian Grass. She has been touring with the band ever since. In between tours, as a partner in the Famous Old Time Music Company, Kitty teaches fiddle, mandolin, beginning guitar, beginning banjo, and upright bass.
