Debbielee & Joe Whelchel
Claw Hammer Banjo in the Context of Old-Time Music
Sunday April 21
2:30 at the Hancock Pavilion
Debbielee and Joe Whelchel live in the Sautee Nacoochee community in Northeast Georgia, and are actively involved in the preservation and performance of old time Appalachian music. They have both played in a number of old time bands and performed as a duo in several venues, including The Mountain Music and Medicine Show, Eddie’s Attic (Decatur), Sautee Nacoochee Community Center, The Clarkesville Theater, and others. Debbielee primarily uses clawhammer-style banjo to accompany her singing, with Joe playing guitar.
