Trinity River Band
Trinity River Band is an Americana, Bluegrass and Acoustic Roots band from Callahan, Florida that has burst onto the national acoustic music scene in just six short years. Tracing their beginnings to performances in their local area churches starting in 2008, they went to full-time touring in 2011 and quickly gained a devoted following nationwide.
There is no better harmony than that of a family band and the group’s harmony blend perfectly serves their musical style. The years spent honing their vocals are evidenced by their recorded and live performances. The group includes the talents of Mike Harris (Guitar, Lead & Harmony Vocals); Lisa Harris (Bass, Harmony Vocals); Josh Harris (Banjo, Dobro, Harmony Vocals); Brianna Harris (Fiddle); and the mesmerizing lead singer and Mandolinist, Sarah Harris who was a 2013 IBMA Momentum Award Nominee in the Vocalist of the Year Category.
The band’s 2013 album, TODAY DON’T LOOK LIKE RAIN, received worldwide radio play and included a variety of music styles including the beautiful duet “What Did I Ever Do” with Trinity River Band lead vocalist, Sarah Harris and Josh Williams (Rhonda Vincent & The Rage) – along with a high energy bluegrass cover of Pure Prairie League’s “Amie” with lead vocals by Mike Harris and many more. The band is currently in the studio working on their next CD, “Better Than Blue” which will feature new original material from Mike and Sarah Harris, Larry Cordle, Carl Jackson and Brink Brinkman. This highly anticipated sixth CD will be released in April 2014. Visit the website.
Back in 1994, fans of music festivals in the mid-South began to notice a new kid on the scene. He was a wiry, animated, funny crowd-pleasing young man who knew all of the old-time contest favorites like "Liberty" and "Whiskey Before Breakfast," who could hold his own with the best pickers at these contests, and who even knew a couple of chicken songs. But he was also different, in a very important way. His instrument was not the fiddle or the banjo or the dulcimer, but the harmonica. Now middle Tennessee has been a hotbed for harmonica players ever since the 1920's when DeFord Bailey, Dr. Humphrey Bate, and the Crook Brothers used the instrument to help start up the Grand Ole Opry. And most every festival in the area today still has a harmonica competition. But the kind of music this young man was playing was unlike most of the harmonica music normally heard there. It was cleaner, sharper, more innovative, and incredibly faster than anything else. It might best be described as "bluegrass harp," with the rich, rapid cascading runs of notes resembling the three-finger rolls of Earl Scruggs - only played on an instrument more commonly associated with cowboy laments and sentimental songs. Fans and judges alike have hailed the music of this young man, giving him over a hundred first place awards in his contests. Here's a chance to experience some more of the excitement of this breathtaking new sound - and to meet the man who created it: Wailin Wood. ~ Dr. Charles Wolfe Visit the website!
