String band musicians Hasee Ciaccio, Sam Gleaves, and Tyler Hughes will perform a show of old time country music, dance and storytelling.
Currently residing in Nashville, Tennessee, Hasee Ciaccio is a vocalist, upright bass player and guitarist who tours regularly with The Molly Tuttle Band. While studying at East Tennessee State University, Ciaccio performed with the Old-Time Pride Band and the Barefoot Movement. With these groups, Ciaccio has performed at venues such as New York City’s Lincoln Center and shared the stage with a number of esteemed artists including Dr. Ralph Stanley, Claire Lynch and the Carolina Chocolate Drops.
During her time at East Tennessee State, Ciaccio began her musical collaboration and friendship with southwest Virginia native Tyler Hughes. A skilled singer, storyteller, banjo picker and autoharp player, Hughes is equally at home calling square dances and flatfooting, the percussive dance style of the southern Appalachians. Hughes is known to regional audiences as part of the Johnson City, Tennessee group the Empty Bottle Stringband and he performs as a duo with Sam Gleaves.
Based in Berea, Kentucky, Sam Gleaves is a singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist who has studied traditional music with a number of master artists including Jim Lloyd, Sheila Kay Adams and Cathy Fink. Gleaves’ 2015 album AIN’T WE BROTHERS received international acclaim for its progressive perspective on Appalachian music.
“A stunning first album. Sam’s got a “Sing it again, Sam” voice and approach. The songs written from direct experience are the highlights (Ain’t We Brothers, Two Virginia Boys) and they prepare us very well for interpreting Johnny, an excellent traditional ballad. Surprising from a 23-year-old still refreshingly wet behind his commercial ears. I keep very few albums that I am given. This one’s a keeper.”
– Peggy Seeger, Folk singer and songwriter
