Keeping Yadkin Valley's Music Alive (and kickin')
Friday August 6th 2021
The Reeves Theater – Elkin, NC
Singer/songwriter/guitarist Abigail Dowd grew up under the longleaf pines of North Carolina and comes from a long line of musicians. Known for her storytelling and command of an audience, she has been called “a writer of the highest caliber” (All Scene Eye). Her soulful voice and unique classical guitar style combined with the edgy bass of Jason Duff has been described by Acoustic Guitar Magazine as “The guitar-driven introspective folk of the 1970s is a touchstone, but so are blues and roots rock ’n’ roll.”
Dowd’s latest album, “Beautiful Day” was produced by Jason Richmond (Steep Canyon Rangers, Rising Appalachia, Dom Flemons) and released on April 23. Recorded live with a full band, it is full of resilience, hope and grit.
