About this event:

Created by montreux

A stylistically unique country roots band from day one, the members of Saluda Shoals have been singing, performing, and playing in sync as if they’d been together their entire musical careers. Saluda Shoals began in the spring of 2015 as an acoustic project between Henri Gates (Southwood) and Cassie Verhaeghe (Brushfires). The duo began writing music and performing nightly, quickly making a name for themselves. In 2016 they recruited some of Charleston’s best musicians and the full band was born. Throughout the course of the band’s union, they have won over the hearts of music lovers from all walks of life; performing at a variety of venues, making loads of public appearances, all the while writing and recording new music.

“(Saluda Shoals) come out blazing with a nearly flawless blend of talent, energy and undeniable presence. Whether caressing your ears with a velvet ballad or curling your socks with a rousing rocker, the harmony and precision of Henri Gates and Cassie Verhaeghe delivers pure listening pleasure. In particular, one of their original songs, “Fight Dirty,” would be right at home on the current country or alternative hit charts and, frankly, outshine many of the songs currently there.”
