Data provided by DiscogsNote: For the Bluebird (3) recording artists of the same name please use the Tennessee Ramblers (aka Dick Hartman's Tennessee Ramblers).

Old-time East Tennessee string band originally consisting of William Fiddlin' Bill Sievers (fiddle), son James "Mack" Sievers (banjo & vocals), daughter Willie Sievers Wiggins (guitar), and cousin Walter McKinney (steel guitar). The band was one of the most popular performing groups in East Tennessee during the 1920s through the 1940s, gaining initial fame as a backing band in fiddle contests held at Market Hall in Knoxville, Tennessee, and later performing at fairs and other gatherings around the eastern United States. They recorded several sides for Brunswick/Vocalion in 1928 and 1929, which were issued on the Vocalion label. After the death of William Sievers in 1954, siblings James and Willie formed a Hawaiian music group known as Mack's Novelty Hawaiians. Willie Sievers' guitar solos recorded with the band in 1928 and 1929 are among the first by a female lead guitarist in Country music.
