Review from the Canadian Embassy:
Drymill Road played at the Embassy of Canada on July 23rd, to a crowd of over 350 people. Not only was their music great, they were reliable, extremely professional, friendly and efficient. Having them play really made the whole event, and we wouldn’t hesitate to book them again in the future. (Megan L., Events Production, Embassy of Canada)
International touring band, Drymill Road includes: Robert Mabe on Banjo, Sean Loomis on Guitar, Doug Ross on Mandolin, and David Hurt on Bass.
Its high energy and heartfelt original material, with a good mix of traditional music and “not so” traditional takes on Led Zeppelin, Hank Williams, Bob Dylan, and the Beatles…to name a few.
The band brings a full-blown entertainment experience to the stage with some very different blends of old, new, traditional, surprising twists and turns of musicality and phrasing. The beauty of it is to not expect to hear “NewGrass” or some far-out translation of the basic form. The value is in the entertainment package. They’ll transport you down a road – that’s ‘Older than the Hills.

“….I did. You guys are different in some very rare ways. You haven’t got a tenor, you didn’t put “Love of the Mountains” on your CD, There are no showoffs on any instrument. You aren’t afraid to border on folk, new grass, Indie, cafe, uptown and or mountain blues style pickin. I can only think of one heretic that got such a review when looking for a gig when he was young. His name was Charlie Waller. I’m interested and we need to talk….” Read more…
