Conley

It is accurate to say that the Westport Singers were Rich Conley, Herb Pedersen and Butch Waller. However, at the time this photo was taken , they were the first Bluegrass band in the SF Bay Area. They added the double bass when they switched from folk to Bluegrass. The double bass player is Tiny Hollis. Tiny did not play with them when they were the Westport Singers.
