The Knotty G’s will be joined by some of the finest musicians from the “big ‘ole goofy” town of Asheville to celebrate the music and legacy of one of America’s most influential and beloved songwriters, John Prine, on his birthday, October 10th. This incredible lineup features Felix Pastorius on bass, Lyndsay Pruett on violin, Jackson Dulaney on pedal steel, Daniel Combs on organ and keyboards, Kent Spillman on drums as well as other special guests throughout the evening.
The Knotty G’s- Gillian Francis H.E. Knott (vocals/guitar) and Charles Knott (vocals/guitar): The Knott’s goal is simple: to create music and an experience at their shows they feel is genuine. Gritty yet funky performances fuse with the band’s jovial nature and invite audiences to take part in the revelatory power of music while still managing to tap into plenty of fun. In the short time they've been a team, they have amassed an impressive list of stages and festivals, including: the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival, The Blue Ridge Pride Festival, Strangecreek Campout, Wormtown Music Festival, and The Ladybug Festival. In December 2021, they released “Set Sail,” their first full length studio album recorded with award winning producer Matt Williams at The Eagle Room located just outside of Asheville. The album showcases genre jumping compositions tied together with the same singular soul-soaked thread that weaves its way through all of their music.
