Don Wilburn
Hayloft Frolic
Renfro Valley Barn Dance

Don Wilburn was born in West Virginia but seemed to find a home in the midwest in his musical career.

His career took him to Alabama for a time where he met THE country music singer of that era - Hank Williams, Senior. But his talents eventually had him working in Muncie, Indiana where his talents and guitar found him regular work on radio and television.

In 1957, Don became one of the featured performers on the famed "Hayloft Frolic" that was hosted by Uncle Bob Hardy. During that time, he toured far and wide with the rest of the troupe, from Indiana to Illinois and then touring Japan and Korea to entertain the United nations forces.

In the 1980s, Don toured Europe with a Folk Dance group.

Later, he performed for over 20 years in Mountain View, Arkansas.

Don was also a featured act on the legendary Renfro Valley Barn Dance over in Kentucky.

But 2007 finds Don and his guitar back in Indiana.
