Cumberland Blue

Cumberland Blue formed in the fall of 2012 when a group of young blues musicians decided to start something new based on their love for the deep roots of blues music.
They wanted to honor the roots of blues and give it a fresh take for today’s audiences. Lead by vocal powerhouse Chloe Kohanski they show their old blues souls in every song. Duncan King provides powerful, groove laden percussion along with heart pounding bass from Greggory Garner. Grant Smith adds a spicy touch with his unique blues fiddle. Hank Compton provides tasteful and searing guitar. Rounding out the band is Keyboard prodigy Yates McKendree keeping the ivories dancing! All the musicians in Cumberland Blue are multi instrumentalists with talent and playing experience beyond their young ages.
