Reedy River String Band

Thurs 4/11 • 9:00pm • Free

Reedy River String Band has taken the Southeast of the United States by storm the past few years with their fresh take on Appalachian roots music. In 2023, Reedy River performed at several notable bluegrass festivals, including the Earl Scruggs Music Festival (EmmyLou Harris, Infamous Stringdusters, Greensky Bluegrass) and the Charleston Bluegrass Festival (Leftover Salmon, Molly Tuttle, Keller and the Keels). Reedy River’s sound is modern bluegrass with foot stompin’ elements of jam and rock n’ roll inspired by the various touring and recording experiences of its members. In any given show, Multi-instrumentalist Sterling Waite interchanges mandolin, fiddle, banjo, and harmonica to bring a range of textures to the band’s live performances. With Rush Morgan on guitar and Mark Dye on upright bass, all three of the members are songwriters and lead singers, lending a depth and variety of original material beyond the band’s relatively short time together. Since forming in 2021, Reedy River String Band released their debut self-titled album in 2022 and has since released two singles, “My Grass is Blue,” and “Punkin Brown” in 2023. Their studio releases have been played on multiple radio stations in the Southeast of the United States including WNCW Spindale, NC, WLHR Lake Hartwell, GA, and The Creek Macon, GA.
