The Gravy Boys
The Gravy Boys hail from Raleigh/Durham, North Carolina and perform Acoustic Americana music that draws deep from the well of our country’s diverse musical heritage. Their high energy shows feature heartfelt vocal harmonies, boot-stomping rhythms, lively stage banter, and honest musicianship. The Gravy Boys are story tellers who spin their tales through tight, brother-duet vocals over a vintage acoustic backdrop. They take classic American themes and bring them into the present day, with an authentic passion that resonates with all who listen.
They have released 3 CDs of original music: Crackerjack Whistle (2012), Dust Bowl Lover (2009), and Workin’ the Angels for Handouts (2007).
Lynda Dawson & Pattie Hopkins
Songwriting guitarist Lynda Dawson and fiddler Pattie Hopkins step out of the full-on Kickin Grass Band to lay down intricately crafted female duets as refreshing as a spring Carolina evening. With guitar instrumentation topped with soulful fiddling, their natural blend of sweet harmonies makes you feel like you’ve been invited into the living room of a best-kept-secret musical house party. Expect to hear compelling original songs, traditional American fiddle tunes and Appalachian duet standards inspired by the likes of Hazel and Alice or the Monroe brothers. This is genuinely beautiful and honest roots music you can carry with you long after the performance has lifted.
