The Leen Valley Band

The Leen Valley Band bring you authentic roots Americana, playing honky-tonk classics from the streets of Nashville, rip-roaring hoe-down banjo and fiddle tunes from the mountains of Kentucky, heart-rending soulful ballads and bluesy country/gospel… This all-acoustic band, featuring guitar, fiddle, banjo, dobro, stand-up bass, harmonica… and creamy-rich, high mountain harmonies, have a long-established reputation for memorable sessions of great musicianship and classic, good-time atmospheric music from the years before country music went glitzy. Drink your broken heart away to honky-tonk classics… then repent your drunken sins through rousing old-time, hell-fire gospel!
Expect to be reminded of Hank Williams, Merle Haggard, Johnny Cash, The Carter Family, Ola-Belle Reed, The Everly Brothers, Skip James… and be introduced to a few old-timers you maybe never heard of…
