January 18th Happy Birthday Jeff Mcleod

Happy Birthday Jeff Mcleod! Born January 18th, Jeff grew up in Canton, NC and lives in Weaverville, NC.

Although Jeff isn’t known for being on the stage at events, he is known for the great menu he serves.


Jeff was a wonderful asset, keeping our friends fed during several of the Bluegrass Hope events held in 2017-18.  Often working

alone, Jeff would set up his BBQ Food Truck at these events.  Not only did everyone enjoy the music and company but they got their fill of barbecue, brisket and other restaurant style foods.


He is Owner-operator at Hit the Pit BBQ Co., Canton, NC; Head Cook at Precision Palate, Weaverville, NC.

Contact Jeff to cater your event or feed a crowd anytime you want them completely filled and their palate satisfied.

Good food and Bluegrass music…what a combo~!



About the author

I enjoy researching Bluegrass, Bluegrass Gospel, and Country birthdays, anniversaries and interesting trivia dates. I am a piano/organ performance major who has taught privately and served as church accompanist since 1968 in North Carolina and Central Kentucky. Although classically trained, I appreciate all genres of music. My mother, who was also a church musician and taught public school music grades K-12, knew that Bluegrass music was the purest American music. She always introduced her students to this fine genre and began my musical studies with her at age 2. Bach to Berachah Valley, Mozart to Jimmy Martin, Sibelius to Stanley Brothers, the list goes on, I hope you find some moments of enjoyment and learn a few interesting facts along the way.
I am thankful for the many resources we have at our fingertips including Google. FaceBook and BluegrassBios by Wayne Rice. It was he who inspired me to tackle the task of trying to pass on knowledge about Bluegrass music. Thanks Wayne~!
