Cloyd

John Cloyd Miller is a is a twelfth generation North Carolina native and the grandson of pioneering bluegrass fiddler Jim Shumate.  Some of our Chestnut House Concertgoers may recall banjoist Riley Baugus of  Old Buck that performed in April, 2014.

Here’s what Riley has to say about John Cloyd of Zoe & Cloyd:  shapeimage_2

“John’s music reminds me of being in the Blue Ridge Mountains, high on a hill all alone
and hearing the sound of the mountains coming from all around and filling your soul with the feeling that everything is just right in that place. His voice is strong and pure and hearkens back to a time when there was no need for electronic enhancement and tuning adjustments. In short, John is the real thing and is just incredible.”

Riley Baugus

Zoe & Cloyd will be performing at 7:00 pm at Chestnut House Concerts on Friday, September 9, 2016.  There’s a potluck at 6:00 pm before the show.  If you would like to attend please contact Tim at tlehman9@gmail.com or call/text 717-940-9311.  Requested donation of $15/20 per person.
