The creation of innovative and original music is an ever elusive goal in this day and age. The Virginia Dare Devils’ mission to do just that is most certainly well under way. From their beginnings a year ago in the acoustic music hotbed of Asheville, NC, this group of seasoned Americana veterans has embarked upon an organic musical journey rooted in traditional melody and tone layered with improvisational solos and textured rhythms reminiscent of psychedelic jams of the sixties, while tipping the cap to 30’s swing bands. Add gritty arrangements, plus big family-style vocals and you’re in for the real thing. Members include Bobby Miller-Mandolin and lead vocals, Griff Martin-Guitar, vocals, Bill Cardine-Dobro, Billy Gilmore-Banjo, Tim Gardner-Fiddle, & Rick Cooper-Upright Bass.
