"Top 5 bands worth listening to in Charlotte"

“If you live in the 704 and have not heard the bluegrass of Coddle Creek you are missing out. They’re co-led by Adam Lawrence and Travis Weddington, with Steven Davidson on the mandolin and Dave McLendon on bass. Their roots are deeply tied to the spirit of bluegrass, as Adam’s father, Jack Lawrence, was Doc Watson’s right hand man. The genuine tunes of Coddle Creek will remind you of the last time you passed around a mason jar, and maybe you’ll even holler their motto,’Go Fast and Shine!'” - Charlotte 5

"Charlotte Hempfest 2017: A Day Of Education & Killer Local Music"

Concluding the night was the extra professional and universally appealing bluegrass band, Coddle Creek. Steven Davidson on mandolin and Bill Shaddon on washboard, formerly of local great Spongecake and the Fluff Ramblers, along with Steven’s son and Bill’s grandson, Brandon, playing some bongos and singing his own tune “Should’ve Gone Fishin’” make this a true family affair. Travis Weddington on guitar and rock star like vocals from Adam Lawrence are not to be forgotten doing the exact same thing, and David McClendon standing up that bass rounds out the group. With oh so solid covers of Dead tunes like “Loser,” “Mississippi Half-Step” and “Cold Rain and Snow,” standards and plenty of originals, you absolutely cannot miss with these guys! - Show the Show


Still working on that hot first release.



Coddle Creek is a high energy creekgrass band from the foothills of NC in beautiful Coddle Creek! It's traditional bluegrass... music with a kick,we like to play fast and let our light shine bright!!! The sweet harmonies and dueling acoustic guitars of longtime friends Travis Weddington and Adam Lawrence are like no other.

Travis Weddington is from Coddle Creek, NC. He grew up playing traditional bluegrass with his family. Travis then got bit by the blues bug, under the wing of Rusty Barkley in the Part Time Blues Band. Shortly thereafter, Travis started ripping up electric guitar leads for the "improvisational project band Duk Tan”. His vocals songwriting and acoustic guitar licks are the icing on the cake in Coddle Creek.

With his original songs, vocals, and acoustic guitar picking, Adam Lawrence is a large part of the sweet sounds of Coddle Creek. After hearing recordings at a young age of his father, Jack Lawrence, and the late Doc Watson, Adam dove into the guitar and hasn't looked back. He has had the honor to play on stage with many of the great flatpickers of our time, which only increases his desire to play. Adam’s influences include the late Doc Watson and his father, Jack Lawrence, to Django Reinhardt, Clarence White, Bryan Sutton, Stephen Mougin and far too many others to include. Adam also enjoys branching out with many different genres, from progressive blues and most recently jam bands. Adam continues to redefine and create his own style of flatpicking with traveling and playing any kind of music nationwide.

Dave Mclendon, the veteran musician and long time bass player for Duk Tan, hails from the backwoods of Richfield, NC where you can hear the slapping of the cat gut on the hollow body of a sexy stand up fiddle off in the distance, if all is quiet and you put your ear to the ground...Just listen, you'll hear it!

Steven Davidson has been all around this great country of ours and played with some of the living legends of our time. He's toured around with Spongecake and the Fluff Ramblers holding down the low end but barely holding his eyes open behind the wheel of their slow moving van! Steven has twice the strings now and he's using every one of them and chucking his way along with the Coddle Creek crew! He's a well rounded musician and the perfect fit for this group of misfits, plus, the Mandolin makes him look alot bigger than the bass does!

See y'all at the show!!!
