The Broadcasters have played extensively along the east coast and have traveled across the country and around most of the world playing music. We play concerts, parties, weddings, dances, public and private events near or far. Contact us to play in your town!
We just sound like we sound like.And what they sound like, says Virginia State Folklorist, Jon Lohman, 'is an arresting trio of fine musicians, playing the music they love the only way they know how, resulting in a sound that melds a seasoned artistry with playful exuberance. David, Ivy and Grace’s voices together create a sound that is at once hauntingly ancient yet refreshingly new. There is a sense of immediacy to the Broadcaster’s sound, which can bring old chestnuts to new life, while providing new originals with the patina and soul of the well-worn hills that inspire them.'
