I am excited to announce that we have booked a wonderful Nashville Singer-Songwriter duo Jeni and Billy, and I think you are going to love them.
I first heard Jeni & Billy perform at Appalshop's Seedtime on the Cumberland Festival in Whitesburg, and I bought their CD "Jewell Ridge Coal." I bet I've listened to it 100 times.
Check em out at Merlefest performing their hit "Tazewell Beauty Queen"
