Americana from Hilton Head Island, S.C.
It's a boot stomp on a dusty bar floor. It's the clang of a whiskey bottle at last call. It's grit. It's the sounds of the South. It's Cranford Hollow, a blended mix of Southern Rock, Appalachian Fiddle Music and American Rock and Roll.
The Hilton Head Island quintet, comprised of vocalist and guitarist John Cranford, bass man Phillip Sirmans, drummer Randy Rockalotta, fiddler and vocalist Eric Reid, and guitarist Yannie Renicke have won over thousands of loyal fans with what they call Lowcountry Stomp, a sound that is at once eclectic but uniquely their own. Elements of Blues, Old-Time Country, and Southern Psychedelic Rock come together with ancient mountain melodies in an energetic, engaging musical root bag sprinkled with some Sea Island hoodoo. Since 2011 Cranford Hollow has been playing upwards of 200 shows a year, steadily expanding from the South Carolina Lowcountry to places as far afield as Eau Claire, WI, Livingston, MT and Taos, NM.
The band will be releasing their fifth studio album "Color/Sound/Renew/Revive" in September and continue to tour nationally into 2017 to promote the new record.
The Mighty Pines
The Mighty Pines are a fierce roots band making music inspired by the wide rivers and red-brick streets of St. Louis. For the last five years they’ve been fashioning their distinctive heartland sound. The music is fresh: bluegrass meets acoustic soul and rock & roll. With their genre bending original songs the band bridges the gap between groove and grass, between country and funk, between blues and folk. The music can at one moment be raucous and at the next hushed, with soaring harmonies keeping it sweet through every song.
The Pines formed in 2012 and since have released two albums, played hundreds of live shows and shared bills with such renowned acts as Greensky Bluegrass, Sam Bush, New Riders of the Purple Sage, Fruition, and many more in bars and concert halls across the country. This is a band that can rage a late night festival show or captivate an intimate listening room crowd. Their latest release, Lonesome Blues, establishes The Mighty Pines as a young, exciting force in grass-roots music--but there’s only way to truly experience this dynamic quartet: see them live.
