Chamomile and Whiskey – 18 March 2017 at The Batesville Market
March 18 @ 18:30 - 21:00Free
Chamomile and Whiskey plays an eclectic blend of raucous-roots, drunken-Irish, potent-americana, and mountain-funk…best served with whiskey… and plenty of it.
Chamomile and Whiskey formed in the Blue Ridge mountains of Virginia in the late winter of 2011. Marie Borgman and Koda Kerl had been traveling the country playing as a duo and returned home to Nelson County with the idea of forming a full band. After a few shows of expirementing with different musicians they quickly settled in with Tim Deibler, Brenning Greenfield, and Ryan Lavin. From the beginning the group played dozens of shows in the local bar scene, with an emphasis on high energy and passionate performance. With each of the members coming from different musical backgrounds the songs melded into a new sound… with shades of rock, americana, Irish, gypsy, and old-time sounds… all played with a punk rock ferocity.
The band has toured for performances up and down the east coast, from Vermont and New York down to South Carolina. With infectious and ever-changing live performance, they’ve developed a reputation for engaging shows full of rowdy dancing and incredible collaborations.
