Bill and Pam Gurley have been making music together since their first date. In the years since that time, the music has grown and become an integral part of their lives. Through hundreds of performances and travels in and out of Virginia, the Gurleys have drawn an ever- widening circle of friends and music lovers around them. One reviewer described the music as “clean and polished, yet still rustic and natural…..musical communication on a deep, honest level”. That honesty together with their obvious talents has endeared the Gurleys to countless people over the years.

Pam has a voice that makes one stop and listen. Though she came from a musical family, discovering her own talent was almost an accident. Tryouts for the high school chorus got her out of biology class! She was soon performing more seriously in a rock/gospel group that featured her as a soloist. It was at one of these performances that Bill heard her sing for the first time and knew he had to arrange an introduction!

Bill’s early interest in music was nurtured by his father who had been the leader of a band during his own college days. After playing the guitar for several years, he heard the music of Flatt & Scruggs and was taken by the sound of the five-string banjo. Blessed with a good ear, Bill was able to teach himself banjo and later fiddle and mandolin. Weekends found him at festivals or picking at the local firehouse. When he met Pam, he shared his love of folk and bluegrass music and the two began a career of performing, writing, and recording together that has spanned over twenty-five years.

The Gurley’s now make their home in the rural Northern Neck of Virginia in a family farmhouse that they are restoring. They have two children and stay very busy making their life an extension of their creative nature, Bill as a music teacher and Pam as a chef at The Inn At Levelfields, a local B&B and rowing school.
