I Draw Slow’s most recent album, White Wave Chapel, is a creative progression for the Ireland-based roots band. Irish music has a long, rich history of influencing old-time music and related styles, and with I Draw Slow, youll see the influence come full circle, as this Irish bands sound is rooted in the style of the Appalachian mountains and the traditions of Irish music, while incorporating all thats great about modern Americana.
I Draw Slow is a five-piece outfit comprising vocals, guitar, fiddle, banjo and double bass. Holden siblings Dave (guitar) and Louise (vocals) have been writing together for two decades. In 2008 the pair teamed up with violinist Adrian Hart, clawhammer banjo player Colin Derham, and double bassist Konrad Liddy to form I Draw Slow. In 2014, they performed in Raleigh as part of the StreetFest during Wide Open Bluegrass, presented by PNC. They have been described in the UK press as American top league equivalents destined to blow the opposition away, drawing favorable comparisons with Gillian Welch and Alison Krauss.
