The Howlin' Brothers

Sunday, September 21st at 3pm
matinee event
The Howlin’ Brothers are a three-piece Nashville based string band that brings heart & soul
 into every performance. With their first album rising to #6 on the Americana charts,
 the band's genre-fusing style melts slide banjo, harmonica and old-time fiddle together to
create a past meets the future kind of music. Though they certainly incorporate bluegrass rhythms,
these Ithaca College graduates say they’re better described as Americana, where multiple hyphens
 are the norm and boundaries are not.
Don't miss these guys while they are here in Dahlonega.
