The Deep Hollow

Tellico, 7:00pm November 11, Burlington Capitol Theater

Apr 28, 2017

Firmly planted in Asheville NC's thriving roots music scene, Tellico is well schooled in bluegrass but with an unbridled organic "Appalachiacana" sound, combining some of the finest voices, songs and instrumental prowess in western North Carolina and beyond. Anya Hinkle and Stig Stiglets' committed, authentic vocals are alloyed with Aaron Ballance's flowing and soaring dobro and Jed Willis' textured and expressive mandolin, rooted in the mountain music they grew up with while pushing tradition into a modern Americana sound aesthetic.

This break-out folk trio from Springfield, IL started out in a big way, with their song "Devil" winning the American Songwriter Magazine's Grand Prize before their debut album was released.

The wonderfully crafted songs and tight harmonies of their self-titled debut album have been showing up on many folk charts during the past year.

"Wonderfully original mountain music" -Martin Anderson, WNCW 88.7FM
