The Danberrys

WEDNESDAY 6th December 7:30pm

Described as ‘a rhythmically seductive and emotionally connecting band’, The Danberrys are led by Tennessee-born couple of Ben DeBerry and Dorothy Daniel – a truly unique pair of artists hailing from East Nashville, Tennessee.

The pair have built a special indie-folk vibe around Dorothy’s luxuriously smoky voice and Ben’s intricate acoustic guitar flatpicking, with a sound drawing influences from bluegrass, country, blues and the funk/soul traditions.

Performing as a trio, with upright bass, The Danberrys show takes the listener through the near limitless nature of the Americana genre.

All three of the band’s albums have been nominated for a number of independent music awards, including Best EP, two nominations for Best Americana Album, and a recent 2016 win in the Best Bluegrass Song category.

The Danberrys’ New Zealand tour features Kiwi Vanessa McGowan of Tattletale Saints (who have previously visited Katikati Folk Club), who has been playing bass with the band for the last few years in her adopted home of Nashville.

Come along on WEDNESDAY December 6th for a good time…  it’s our last concert of the year and – as well as the usual highly-regarded tea, coffee and biscuits at half time –  there will be festive nibbles!
