The Danberrys (USA) New Zealand Tour
Fri Dec 8th 2017 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm
Presented by The Sarjeant Gallery…
Described as “a rhythmically seductive and emotionally connecting band,” The Danberrys are led by Tennessee-born couple of Ben DeBerry and Dorothy Daniel – a truly unique pair of artists hailing from East Nashville, Tennessee.
They’ve built a special indie-folk vibe around Dorothy’s luxuriously smoky voice and Ben’s intricate acoustic guitar flatpicking, with a sound drawing influences from Bluegrass, Country, Blues, and the Funk/Soul traditions.
Performing as a trio with Vanessa McGowan (Tattletale Saints) on upright bass, The Danberrys show takes the listener through the near limitless nature of the Americana genre.
All three of the band’s albums have been nominated for a number of Independent Music Awards, including Best EP, two nominations for Best Americana Album, and a recent 2016 win in the Best Bluegrass Song category.
