We were honored to be finalists for two IBMA Momentum Awards: Band-of-the-Year, and our banjo player Tray Wellington nominated for Momentum Instrumentalist-of-the-Year. These awards honor up-and-coming bands in bluegrass under the age of 30. 

Cane Mill Road, based less than six miles from Deep Gap, North Carolina, the home of Doc Watson, draws its inspiration from the late singer/guitarist whose musical imagination gathered inspiration from the deepest Appalachian roots while courageously finding connections to almost all elements of American music...the band has quickly ignited a spark that has led to a recording contract with Patuxent Music and early recognition from the International Bluegrass Music Association.”
