About the event
About Woody Platt:
Woody has always found a home in music and in the water. He has been blessed with the opportunity to successfully follow his passion for music and being a champion for the rivers and streams of Western North Carolina.
A founding member of Steep Canyon Rangers, Woody has won numerous awards collaborating with the likes of Steve Martin, Del McCoury, and Jerry Douglas. In 2018, Woody and the Rangers were inducted to the North Carolina Music Hall of Fame.
About Shannon Whitworth:
As a teen, Whitworth filled journals with poetry. By the time she began college, she was already skipping class to play music.
“I was consumed by it. When a friend gave me Lucinda Williams’ first album, I had the vaguest notion that, just maybe, I could become a musician, too."
The first time Whitworth performed in front of a live audience was at a jam night in Asheville where she met the other founding members of her first bluegrass band.
After years of touring on the road, she left the band and released a spate of highly praised solo records, and she soon found herself building her life around her relationships with the people she loved and a new kind of art.
