Warm up on a cold winter’s night with some old-time fiddling and mountain harmonies. Award-winning duo Zoe & Cloyd will be joined by two young fiddlers, Lillian Chase and Rhiannon Ramsey, who are carrying on the fine fiddling traditions of Madison County.
Zoe & Cloyd spring from deep roots in American music. Founding members of the acclaimed Americana trio Red June, Natalya Zoe Weinstein and John Cloyd Miller recently released their second full-length album, Eyes Brand New, which highlights their signature harmonies and has guest appearances from Will Straughan and Jens Kruger. Zoe & Cloyd’s debut recording,Equinox (2015), met with high acclaim and the pair have continued to gain momentum with a 1st place win at the prestigious FreshGrass Festival Duo Contest, along with performances at MerleFest, Music City Roots and more.
At 13 and 14 years old, Lillian Chase and Rhiannon Ramsey are each carrying on the fiddling traditions of Madison County and western North Carolina. Lillian is from Weaverville and is a student of famed fiddler Arvil Freeman and frequently plays with Roger Howell and with Grammy Award-winner Bobby Hicks. Rhiannon lives in Madison County and studied fiddle with Natalya Weinstein and Arvil Freeman. Both have played at Shindig on the Green, the Mountain Dance and Folk Festival, and the Bascom Lamar Lunsford “Minstrel of Appalachia” Festival at Mars Hill University.
Doors will open at 6:30 pm and seating is first-come, first-served. Tickets are available here: https://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/3119883
