“don’t tell me this town ain’t got no heart“
Red Clay Revival with guest from Songs From The Road Band and Empire Strikes Brass!
ASHEVILLE, N.C. -- Born in the soul-basted countryside of Alabama, then brought to the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains to marinade and mature, Red Clay Revival delivers an experience that continues to reshape the parameters of roots music with skillful, heart-driven compositions. Bandleader and songsmith extraordinaire, Doug McElvy, lays a solid foundation at the epicenter of Red Clay’s musical magnitude. The band’s high energy shows are filled with slam-grass/bluegrass breaks, with a rock feel; it’s an entertaining performance sure to get the crowd moving regardless of musical taste
“Red Clay Revival’s new track ‘Gold’ takes you straight to the fly fishing streams of western North Carolina. Singer-songwriter Doug McElvy (who’s also a fly-fishing guide) is as natural on his guitar as with his fly rod. With festival-scene veteran Zeb Bowles on the fiddle, this is roots rock at its finest!”
“I love this band! These musicians carve an irresistible groove that always gets the party started. Doug Mcelvy is an authentic, soulful powerhouse of a vocalist and songwriter, not to mention a world class fly fisherman! Fishin and pickin- what could be better?!” says flatpicking legend Larry Keel and bassist Jenny Keel, "Doug McElvy and his Red Clay Revival render a rootsy blend of folk rock foundation and inventive yet catchy lyrics. It's earthy and fun music with dark overtones too.”
