The Dillards

Originally from Salem, Missouri, brothers Douglas and Rodney Dillard formed the original bluegrass band, The Dillards, in the mid 1960s. Although they were a huge influence on the group of musicians who were central to the development of the country rock movement in Southern California in the sixties, they are, perhaps, best known as regulars on The  Andy Griffith Show between 1963 and 1966, playing a fictional local  bluegrass band in Mayberry known as The Darlings.
