This Sunday, the band I Draw Slow will be filling the venue with deep Appalachian Mountain, traditional Irish, and modern Americana music vibes. I Draw Slow is a five-piece band made up of Dave Holden (guitar/vocals), Louise Holden (vocals), Konrad Liddy (upright bass), Colin Derham (banjo), and Adrian Hart (fiddle). Did I mention this is a sibling-led band? Holden siblings, Dave and Louise have been writing songs together for the last two decades, and it shows. At their core they are true storytellers; on the surface they craftily blend together music genres from around world.
I Draw Slow was admired sensationally in Ireland after their 2012 album Redhills was named RTEís Radio 1’s album of the week, subsequently hitting the iTunes folk charts for Ireland within days after its release. That year, Redhills made its way to the top ten in numerous international album reviews, and the band was signed by the legendary US label Pinecastle Records.
More recently, I Draw Slow have been touring the U.S, playing in major music festivals including Merlefest, Grey Fox, Rockygrass, Pickathon, and the IBMAs . Their latest album, White Wave Chapel, was released in 2014 and was produced by Brian Masterson.
