Zoe & Cloyd spring from deep roots in American music.
Founding members of the acclaimed Americana trio, Red June, and long-time veterans of the Asheville music scene, Natalya Zoe Weinstein and John Cloyd Miller are set to release their second full-length album, Eyes Brand New, this month.
Highlighting their emotive songwriting and signature harmonies, this new recording finds the duo returning to a full band sound with Kevin Kehrberg on bass, and special appearances from Will Straughan of Red June on dobro and Jens Kruger of the Kruger Brothers on banjo. Eyes Brand New showcases the breadth of their collective musical spirit, seamlessly combining original folk, country, old-time and bluegrass with sincerity and zeal.
Zoe & Cloyd’s debut recording, Equinox (2015), met with high acclaim and the pair have continued to gain momentum with a first place win at the prestigious FreshGrass Festival Duo Contest, along with performances at MerleFest, Music City Roots, and more.
Monthly second-Friday Charlotte Folk Society Gatherings are family-friendly and free; donations are appreciated. Refreshments, a song circle, jam sessions, songwriters’ circle, and an Appalachian dulcimer group follow the hour-long concert. Free parking is available in the 4th St. Mecklenburg County parking deck, between Kings Dr. and McDowell St. Accessible entry.
