Arthur Hatfield has always been interested in Bluegrass music. Born and raised in Rocky Hill, KY. he was learning and honing his skills at Bluegrass music at a very early age. The first band that Arthur played in was called the "New Sounds of Bluegrass" that he and friends Larry Lawrence and Jimmy Dickerson had formed. Arthur soon caught the attention of Carl Story and traveled and performed all over the U.S. and Canada as one of Carl Story's Rambling Mountaineers. Later years has found Arthur playing Bluegrass with his band Buck Creek and doing freelance work playing fiddle, mandolin, guitar and bass as well as banjo.
Arthur, when asked his musical influences, answers with J.D. Crowe, Sonny Osborne and the band Doyle Lawson and Quicksilver.
Arthur now once again resides at his old homeplace where he builds Hatfield Banjos, Necks, and does banjo repairs, etc. He has been building banjos for about 30 years and started building Hatfield Banjos fulltime in 2001.
