The Easter Brothers (1951-Present)
Russell, James, and Ed Easter were born and raised in Mt. Airy, NC in the early 1930’s. Russell began playing the guitar and taught the other two brothers to play when they were young. The early gospel group, formed in Danville VA, where Russell and Ed had moved to work in Dan River Cotton Mill around 1951, was called The Easter Brothers and the Green Valley Quartet. This group also included several other relatives and Allen Mills (currently of Lost and Found) who played bass.
Due to the large number of projects recorded by the Easter Brothers, the discography section has been divided into separate pages by decade. Please click on the links below for the decade you wish to view.
