Bluegrass Wednesday - The Maggie Valley Band
Wednesday, January 3, 2018
8:00 am - 11:00 am
Whitney and Carolina Miller of the Maggie Valley Band have a fresh take on an old country sound. Their brand of ‘dark Appalachian music’ will simultaneously crush your soul and send your heart soaring. A raw approach to Appalachian music intertwined with a heavy sixties influence.
Hailing from Haywood County, North Carolina, two sisters and friends of The Maggie Valley band came together in the town they now identify themselves with. Each member learned their trade of music in the beautiful mountains of Maggie Valley, NC. Sisters Whitney & Caroline Miller grew up in a home where playing the piano was a daily requirement. The Maggie Valley Band has been influenced by a wide variety of artists, movements, cultures, and ideas. Each member grew up listening to and taking in the styles of various musicians ranging from the Stanley Brothers to Simon and Garfunkel, with inspirations from the Band, and more local artists like Rising Appalachia, yet adding their own personal style.
Whitney Miller: Vocals, Guitar, Mandolin, Harmonica, Banjitar
