Letters to Abigail at Farm to Fork Oct. 13Published 9:18pm Tuesday, October 9, 2012
Hendersonville’s “home-town band” Letters to Abigail will perform at the third annual Farm to Fork event this Saturday, Oct. 13.
The band, an acoustic three-piece modern-day string band including songwriter, acoustic guitarist and vocalist James Harrell; vocalist and songwriter Kelli Redmond and Lauren Bandy on upright bass and back-up vocals, has captured a quiet, cult following throughout Western North Carolina.
“With their classic approach to a new original sound, drenched in powerful lyrics, acoustic melodies and soulful harmonies, Letters to Abigail draws listeners into a world of emotion and memory,” Farm to Fork organizers said. “Their songs take you down a road to times gone by, loves won and lost and the uncomplicated gratification of food for which the evening is based around. Surrounded by the rich music of the region, they find themselves welcomed and embraced as a musical presence in Western North Carolina.”
The band recently released a single, “Angel in Ordinary Shoes,” and its first album is due out soon.
Letters to Abigail’s performance will follow the Farm to Fork supper.
