Rooted deep within the American string-band tradition, Lavender Blue brings a sound that is both familiar and fresh. Tight vocal harmonies, poetic song writing, and flashy fiddle playing blend within the ranks of this six-piece ensemble. Clever and playful at one moment and profoundly spiritual the next, Lavender Blue is a continuation of the musical echoes that have resonated throughout the Appalachian hills for centuries.

Lavender Blue Members:

Lee Saville-Iksic – lead vocals and guitar
Aaron White – vocals, guitar, and ukulele
Amanda Coughenour – vocals
Kate Johnston – fiddle
Karl Fisher – mandolin
Charles Holmes – upright bass
