Lex White plays Bluegrass like he was born with it in his blood! Born in Grass Valley California, one of the centers of West coast Bluegrass, to a family steeped in American traditional music, he was brought to every jam and festival possible by his banjo playing father, Earle White. Lex took studying his music seriously from the beginning. As a teenager he studied Flamenco and Classical guitar before returning to his roots in Blues, Folk, and Bluegrass. At the age of 25, a nearly-fatal commercial trucking accident caused Lex to re-evaluate his life and dedicate his life to music.
Lex has traveled throughout the Western US and Hawaii studying, teaching, and performing American traditional music on a variety of instruments. His work now is focusing on sharing and promoting the great heritage music he loves with students and audiences in Reno and throughout the world!
