Harris Brothers Duo at White Horse, Jan. 12
The Harris Brothers are what you might call songsters. “Americana” is often used to describe their style, but the Harris Brothers just call it music. It’s blues mixed up with traditional Appalachian music, jazz, country, bluegrass and rock n’ roll; it’s stripped down, intense and real. Grammy Award-winner David Holt says: “The Harris Brothers are one of my favorite groups. Great playing, singing and soul. It just doesn't get any better than this.” The Lenoir NC-based duo brings their unique sound to the White Horse Black Mountain on Sunday, January 12 at 7:30 pm.Read the full article
Reggie and Ryan Harris were born into a musical family in Caldwell County and have been picking and singing since they were small children. They most often perform with just an acoustic guitar, a bass, a suitcase used as a kick drum, and their two voices, but they have been known to throw in a fiddle, banjo or electric guitar now and again. Listeners are often amazed that two people can craft such a big sound.
The Harris Brothers have been honing their sound for many years, from honkytonks to large venues like the Blue Ridge Music Center and festivals like MerleFest, Hickory Fest and the Wayne C. Henderson Music Festival. The brothers have shared the stage with such accomplished musicians as Vassar Clements, Bobby Hicks, David Holt, Peter Rowan, David Grisman, and Laura Boosinger, to name just a few.
With their showmanship, almost telepathic musical connection, diverse repertoire and ability to improvise, no two shows are ever the same. And, with their hearts truly in the music they are playing, the Harris Brothers are sure to captivate any audience.
Show starts at 7:30. Tickets are $10.
