ASHEVILLE, NC – The Grey Eagle has confirmed its New Year’s Eve entertainment. Larry Keel will headline the evening with his band Natural Bridge. In addition, the evening will feature performances by Bawn in the Mash and Dwayne Brooke of The Woodshedders. In addition, Larry Keel and his brother Gary will offer an opening set of bluegrass songs as The Keel Brothers.
Connecting traditional songs of yesterday with their own original and inventive sounds of today, Larry Keel & Natural Bridge create astonishingly powerful acoustic music rich in heritage, heart and hot licks! With a style that evokes both atomic rock energy and dynamic tonal purity, Keel and his ensemble are intent upon taking their instruments and their voices to their fullest potential for emotion and amazement. While paying respect to the legacy left by the forefathers of bluegrass, Keel bridges the gap between traditional and contemporary American Mountain Music.
