Hailing from opposite ends of the Appalachian mountains, husband-and-wife duo Zoe & Cloyd is renowned fiddler and vocalist Natalya Zoe Weinstein and award-winning songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and vocalist John Cloyd Miller. Their show is as diverse as their upbringing: Coming from a line of klezmer and jazz musicians, Natalya trained classically in her home state of Massachusetts while John, a twelfth generation North Carolinian, is the grandson of pioneering bluegrass fiddler, Jim Shumate. Founding members of the acclaimed Americana trio, Red June and long-time veterans of the Asheville, NC music scene, the couple shifted to their duet project after the birth of their daughter in 2015. With two highly acclaimed albums to date, winning the 2015 FreshGrass Duo Contest, and past appearances on prestigious stages such as MerleFest, Music City Roots and Carolina in the Fall, Zoe & Cloyd is “a musical collaboration that demands to be heard” – Bluegrass Unlimited Magazine.
Red June is a powerful acoustic trio from Asheville, North Carolina performing beautifully distilled original American music. The band is known for a dynamic, yet refined sound that features striking three-part harmonies, tasteful instrumental work, and honest, soulful songwriting that seamlessly blends bluegrass, old-time, country and American roots music. Red June (Will Straughan on resonator guitar, guitar and vocals, Natalya Weinstein on fiddle and vocals and John Cloyd Miller on mandolin, guitar and vocals) has been capturing the hearts of audiences across the country since 2009 and has performed at such prestigious events as Music City Roots, Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion, Shakori Hills Grassroots Festival, Suwannee Springfest and the 25th anniversary MerleFest.
“Beauty Will Come by Red June just may be the most stunningly gorgeous country album in years”
