The November 11 edition of The Born & Bred Concert Series features Taylor Made, A Tale of Two and Chris Haddox.
Hailing from Taylor County, West Virginia, country group Taylor Made is comprised of siblings Wendy Williams, Greg Duckworth and Brian Duckworth. The trio is known for their three-part sibling harmony which debuted on their first single “Heavy Duty Beauty.”
Following their Bluebird Cafe debut, Nashville based A Tale Of Two is an undeniable rising duo in today’s roots music scene. Combining the best of Americana and blues melodies with timeless Southern storytelling, award winning vocalist Stephanie Adlington and guitarist Aaron Lessard draw influence from the likes of Tom Waits and Ray LaMontagne, along with bedrock artists such as Patsy Cline and Hank Williams Sr. Not unlike the artists who inspired them, the duo’s songs frequently dabble in stories of revenge, drinking and feature sinners of all stripes and persuasions.
Taylor Made and A Tale Of Two will be joined on November 11 by Chris Haddox. Chris is a West Virginia born (Logan) and based (Morgantown) musician who’s never met a stringed instrument he couldn’t master. He writes and sings his voluminous collection of songs about (to quote him) “religion, firearms, courthouse squares, goats on trampolines, shoes, fiddles, and hurricanes”—whatever catches his eye. He continues, “Like most writers, I try to find new ways to address old topics. Some songs are funny, some sad, some sarcastic but they are all honest.” This stellar musician is also a community leader who has directed Habitat for Humanity and worked to preserve old neighborhoods, a WVU professor of sustainable design, and an amateur musicologist who researches musicians from the southern coalfields of West Virginia.
