DixieGhost

     At a time when many acoustic roots bands are reaching a broader audience by electrifying their sounds, Dixieghost is swimming against the tide. After having enjoyed local and regional success from 2008-11 as an electrified folk-rock band, they have recently retooled as an acoustic 5-piece string band. Gone are the drums and electric guitars. What remains are the original songs and vocal harmonies of Jason Hanna and Justin Nix. To this core has been added a trio of veteran acoustic instrumentalists, Will Carter (dobro & banjo), Seth Hopper (fiddle) and Josh Sidman (mandolin). The result is a sound that is deeply rooted in traditional folk styles yet is unmistakably original and progressive. Ultimately, it is all about the songs. Hanna and Nix have a rare musical chemistry that can only come from years of writing & singing and playing hundreds of shows together. Their songs feature vocal harmonies reminiscent of the everybodyfields woven in with acoustic instrumental work in the vein of Allison Krauss & Union Station and Blue Highway. The band is currently booking shows throughout the Southeast and looks forward to introducing its new acoustic sound to fans new & old.
