New Appalachian music performers set to play at TFAC amphitheater Thursday

Published 8:00 am Wednesday, May 23, 2018

New Appalachian duo Zoe & Cloyd will perform at the Tryon Fine Arts Center’s Sunset Series on Thursday at 7 p.m.

Hailing from opposite ends of the Appalachian mountains, husband-and-wife duo Zoe & Cloyd features fiddler and vocalist Natalya Zoe Weinstein and songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and vocalist John Cloyd Miller.

Coming from a line of klezmer and jazz musicians, Weinstein trained classically in her home state of Massachusetts while Miller, a 12th generation North Carolinian, is the grandson of pioneering bluegrass fiddler Jim Shumate. Founding members of the Americana trio, Red June, and long-time veterans of the Asheville music scene, the couple shifted to their duet project after the birth of their daughter in 2015.
