This crop of pictures of The Gants Hillbillies, c.1965, are from John Cowling's archives.
John has reminded me that the trio of John, Nol and myself went under the name of "The Back Step Mountain Boys",
an interim band between the demise of the "Gants Hillbillies" and the formation of the "Gants Hill Ramblers" at which point I left to join the "Clay County Travellers".
