The Peyton Brothers, originally of Jacksonville, attended the Florida Folk Festival as spectators for many years before they became perennial favorites of its stage. Their familiarity with the traditions and history of the annual gathering made them instant favorites, as much for their music as for their ability to interweave remembrances of early festival events into their performances. In 1981, The Peyton Brothers disbanded for several years as various opportunities sent them to different corners of the United States. However, it wasn't long after they found themselves residents of Florida again that they were enthusiastically received by the folk festival audience once more.
