Since 2004 Blue Holler has performed a mixture of traditional, contemporary, jazz-influenced and gospel bluegrass music, dazzling audiences at every venue where they perform.
From an early age these multi talented men have honed their musical skills performing at regional venues in Georgia, Florida, and Alabama. Blue Holler’s instrumental perfection combined with impressive family style harmonies are unforgettable.
Heavy influences from traditional artists such as Earl Scruggs, Bill Monroe, Jimmy Martin and Tony Rice provide the foundational roots of Blue Holler’s sound. Influences from other artists including John Hartford, Kenny Smith, Lonesome River Band, and Etta James bring other exciting facets to Blue Holler’s shows.
