Review for Zoe and Cloyd Trio:
The music of the Zoe and Cloyd Trio is an amalgam of traditional Appalachian music, bluegrass, jazz, and a little klezmer thrown in for good measure. Natalya "Zoe" Weinstein is a classically trained violinist who comes from a long line of jazz and klezmer musicians. John "Cloyd" Miller a twelfth generation North Carolinian, is the grandson of the legendary bluegrass fiddler Jim Shumate. John is an award winning songwriter, placing first in both the prestigious Chris Austin Songwriting Contest and the Hazel Dickens Songwriting Competition.
Joining them will be bassist Kevin Kerhberg, an IBMA award winning musician who has played music all over the world from Indonesia to Kyrystan, Japan, and beyond.
In 2021, Zoe and Cloyd have been featured on the PBS show, State of the Music hosted by David Holt. They were the featured artists for the long running Davidson College Holiday Gala during 2022, as well as the hosts of A Swannanoa Solstice at the Wortham Center for the Performing Arts. Their fifth studio album is set to be released in May of 2023, just before their appearance at Bluegrass Armagh in Northern Ireland.
The concert will benefit the DEO Clinic. Now in its 18th year, the not-for-profit medical clinic has provided thousands of office visits to the low income uninsured members of Whitfield and Murray Counties. DEO receives no state or federal government monetary support and depends on grants and the generosity of local donors and businesses. Contributions from each concert will be matched up to $2,500 by Modern Woodmen of America.
The concert will take place at the First Presbyterian Church, 101 S. Selvidge St. in Dalton. Advance tickets are $20; and $24 at the door. Advance tickets are available at the Dalton Freight Depot, Bigham Discount Music, the DEO Clinic, and online at: http://woodsongsdalton.com/
