Billboard-charting artists Liam Purcell & Cane Mill Road grew up just down the road from Doc Watson in Deep Gap, North Carolina. Honoring the past the band strikes a balance between preserving the bluegrass mountain sound they were raised on and boldly rocking progressive interpretations of that same sound tackling not only complex original music, but classic covers of the Beatles, Dylan, and more. The band’s debut album “Five Speed” hit #9 on Billboard’s Bluegrass Album chart. The band represented the U.S. in 2015 at a United Nations World Music Festival.
