Jeff Jarvi/dobro, banjola, vocals, songwriter

Music has always been a part of my life, listening and playing. 

I started my musical transition 6 years ago with banjo lessons. I met Max  and we developed a musical chemistry to form Old Brown Coat. I now write, compose and play dobro, banjola, and guitar.


Max Breedlove/guitar,

harmonica, vocals, songwriter

I started my love of music at a young age and got my first guitar at age 13.  This started my lifelong goal to "start a band". I joined Jeff  2+ years ago on this musical journey. I write music inspired by life experiences. I play guitar and harmonica.


Cathy Yale/Bass, Songwriter

I had minimal exposure to music while growing up.  As retirement approached, my desire to learn an instrument increased. Now six years later, working with many great teachers, I play multiple instruments, host music groups, and compose music.  I have enjoyed Old Brown Coat's music and look forward to my journey with Max and Jeff.
