Dehlia Low celebrates live CD with West Asheville show
by Michael Flynn • published November 5, 2010

ASHEVILLE – At traditional bluegrass gatherings, people sometimes ask members of Asheville’s Dehlia Low why the five-person string band has no banjo player. Guitarist and singer Stacy Claude has come up with an answer.

“I tell people that we had only five seats in the van,” she says with a laugh, “so someone had to go.”

Judging by the band’s growing audience and recognition, Dehlia Low’s blend of bluegrass, country and Americana music sounds just right as is.

The band is playing tonight at West Asheville’s new Get Down to celebrate its latest release, a live album that includes songs from a May gig at The Grey Eagle.

“We’ve been talking about it for a while,” Claude says about recording live. “We feel our studio albums are different than our live performances, and we wanted to capture some of that live energy.”

Along with Claude, the band features vocalist and fiddler Anya Hinkle, dobro player Aaron Ballance, mandolin picker Bryan Clendenin and upright bassist Greg Stiglets. The group came together about three years ago, sparked by connections from Jack of the Wood’s Celtic jam sessions.

The members’ blend of vocal harmonies, acoustic picking and country dobro creates a classic Asheville take on traditional music.

“We like to say we have a foot in bluegrass and a foot in Americana and roots music,” Claude says.

… … …
Look for the group to continue to grow its fan base next year, with more touring and another album written and ready to record. Asheville, Claude says, is the perfect launching pad for the band.

“Living in a community with so many acoustic musicians of this caliber keeps you on your toes,” she says.

“It’s an amazing place to be a musician.”
