GREER, JAMES MARVIN “JIM” (1942-)

Jim Greer was born in West Liberty and was singing on the radio with his sisters, Valeda and Bonnie, when he was five years old. Over the years, he learned to play banjo, mandolin, and guitar. The Greer Sisters with Jim performed primarily around Logan County, but also made appearances at WPFB in Middletown. In 1961, Jim formed the Mac-O-Chee Valley Folks with Valeda, Bob McPherson, and Dalton Burroughs. They frequently performed on Wheeling’s WWVA Jamboree but disbanded in the 1970s after becoming tired of the road. The band reformed in 2006, and were still making appearances around Ohio in 2015, with Jim on banjo and mandolin.
