By & By String Band

 New Orleans, Louisiana, USA

Rich vocal harmonies float through acoustic Appalachian strings in songs of life, love and death inspired by recordings made by the Carter Family.


By & By String Band combines stripped down acoustics with rich harmonies in their interpretation of Americana, Appalachian old-time country, gospel and blues — the roots of which inspire the creation of their original songs. The band grew out of the New Orleans street music scene in the fall of 2008. They first came together when invited to play the Abita Springs Opry, a musical institution dedicated to the presentation and preservation of Louisiana roots music. They have been featured on New Orleans All The Way Live, a program of New Orleans Community Radio Station, WWOZ, and invited to play festivals in Spain, Italy and Ireland. Their first album, Little Darling Pal of Mine: Songs of the Carter Family, is a collection of songs inspired by original Carter Family recordings. It was recorded in the winter and released in the spring 2010 and was nominated by OffBeat Magazine’s Best of the Beat Award for Best Country/Folk Album. By & By String Band, likewise, was honored as being nominated for Best Country/Folk Band.
