    The Brothers are musicians with rural roots.   Banjo picker John Clabourne was raised in the country in Sussex County, Virginia.   Fiddler John Beland was raised on a Mitchell County, Iowa farm.    Earl Rigg  was born in the mountains of Virginia and grew up in Eastern North Carolina on a tobacco farm.  All three live in the semi-rural countyside east of Sierra Vista, Arizona. Clabourne is retired from both the U.S. Army and the Sierra Vista police force.   Beland is a retired electrical engineer and contractor.  Earl Rigg spent 30 years as a technical expert for a Wisconsin phone company.   The Arthritis Brothers are located in rural Sierra Vista Arizona where the weather is always sunny and the plants are mostly thirsty.  Technically, we may not be hill billies, but we do live in the mountains and have pickup trucks and dogs.
