The PineCone - Piedmont Council of Traditional Music has brought some of the best music to the Triangle in recent months and Raleigh will play host to yet another outstanding act later this month. The Triangle's deep appreciation for bluegrass and Americana music has been on display with The Kruger Brothers and Mipso recently playing to sold out crowds and it is with great excitement to announce that I Draw Slow will be this month's featured artist at Fletcher Theater in the Duke Energy Center.
On Friday, February 26, the Ireland-based group will be making their way back to Raleigh for the first time since playing the IBMA Music Festival in the fall of 2014. Upon listening, it doesn't take long to pick up on the Irish influence, but it is the blending of modern Americana and traditional bluegrass that fosters their truly original sound. After getting started in 2008, the five members of I Draw Slow (Dave Holden, Louise Holden, Adrian Hart, Colin Derham, and Konrad Liddy) have been fortunate to perform all over the world and in March 2014 released their third album, White Wave Chapel. If their electric performance at the IBMA festival is any indication of what is to come, you'll be glad that you got your tickets for a night with I Draw Slow. Tickets are still available and can be purchased through TicketMaster. Tickets can also be purchased by calling PineCone's box office at 919-664-8302 or visiting the Duke Energy Center box office in downtown Raleigh. Be sure to check back following the performance for an in-depth interview with the band and a recap of the night at Fletcher Theater.
