You might call him the Fiddler on the Route.
Hagerstown postman James "Jimmie" Brown has trod the same Greenberry Hills mail route since 1979, all the while teaching himself to play the fiddle and 10 other musical instruments.
At one point in his life Brown delivered mail by day and played solo acoustic guitar in bars at night.
His alter ego was "Downtown Jimmie Brown," he said.
"I think a lot of mailmen have split personalities," joked Brown, 53.
The Boonsboro resident will perform Sept. 17 at the fifth annual Appalachian Music Concert at St. Paul's Episcopal Church in Sharpsburg.
And he won't just be fiddling around on stage.
"I very seldom play two songs together on the same instrument," Brown said.
He will alternate playing the fiddle, mandolin, dulcimer, hammer dulcimer, guitar, banjo and harmonica while his wife, Crystal, plays the piano and dulcimer and the church choir sings traditional Appalachian tunes.
