Lois Gelina - Bass/Lead, tenor - Born in Virginia and grew up in Connecticut and Maine, Lois now makes her home in the Gardiner, Maine area. She has been around Bluegrass and Country music since her childhood and a major influence was her father, Jim Savage, who helped pass down the family tradition of strong lead and harmony vocals. Another vocal influence was a friend (and her female vocal idol), the late Earlene Pike from The Pike Family Band. Lois started out playing in a family band known as "Blinnhill Travelers", and went on to form a band called "Blinnhill Bluegrass". In 1983 Lois joined Stan and Dan Tyminski in a well-known Vermont based band known as "Green Mountain Bluegrass" which toured throughout the Northeast. Around 1998 Lois and her husband Brian decided to form their own bluegrass band “Traditional Heights”, which included Brian Mason and Ed (Bub) Cooper.
