Redleg Husky to explore Canyons
Americana band Redleg Husky trots into Canyons of the Blue
Ridge this Friday for a free concert.
Featuring Misa Girouz, Tim McWilliams and David Funderburk, Redleg Husky’s sound “recalls a long drive, a well-worn record and boots on a dusty floor,” according to the band’s official bio.
Giroux and McWilliams met in Boone in 2012, soon combining efforts to pursue their love of acoustic roots music. Later that year, they discovered that Funderburk had similar interests.
“Their eclectic musical backgrounds and master’s degrees in Appalachian music have led them to their unique combination of contemporary folk and blues,” the bio reads.
As such, Redleg Husky has performed throughout the Southeast, including the 2013 Boone screening of the Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour, and has been featured on the Jonesborough Yarn Exchange and WNCW’s “Local Color.”
Locally, the band will perform at the upcoming Sirens on the Mountain festival, coming to the High Country Fairgrounds June 20 and 21. An informational booth about the festival, including tickets, will be set up at Redleg’s Canyons performance.
In addition, the band will perform at May 4’s SEAM dinner at Basil’s Fresh Pasta & Deli in Boone.
But first, Redleg Husky will explore Canyons of the Blue Ridge. The show starts at 9 p.m. Friday, April 25, and admission is free.
Canyons is located at 8960 Valley Blvd. in Blowing Rock. For more information, call (828) 295-7661. For more on Redleg Husky and to give them a listen, visit http://www.redleghusky.com.
