Americana duo, The Grahams, blend deeply personal, emotive and powerful lyrics, with powerful harmonies from the Deep South, to thrill you!Drawing on influences like Lead Belly and Woody Guthrie, the Grahams are a treat for all fans of American roots folk music. Introducing their songs with explanations and banter makes the gig so intimate that, by the end, you will feel as though you have known them all your life!
Their music has been described as soulful bluegrass with hints of early Americana, adding colours from traditional folk and country blues, into an infectious blend of storytelling that results in songs of love, loss, yearning, and life as seen from the rural, less travelled roads of America.
Originally from NYC, husband and wife Alyssa and Doug Graham are now based in Nashville, Tennessee, and have spent nearly all their lives exploring music together. They have combined their love of adventure with a desire to build on foundations laid by their musical predecessors. Their first song-crafting expedition was a year-long trip along the Mississippi’s Great River Road, stretching 3,000 miles from Minnesota to the Gulf of Mexico, and resulted in their acclaimed debut album “Riverman’s Daughter”. For their follow up, “Glory Bound”, they rode the rails for 3 months.
"There is a special connection between American folk music and the railroad that has no parallel elsewhere in the world. Rail lines stitch together the sprawling fabric of American song”. Alyssa says “We’re looking for the modern echo of older songs”. Suitable for those aged 7 and over.
