OLS & State Theatre Present: The Brother Brothers w/ Caroline Cotter

The Brother Brothers sound is striking and undeniably captivating. Often leaning towards the darker, moody elements of Appalachian folk, klezmer, and bluegrass traditions, their songs are laden with near perfect sibling harmonies or unison singing, compelling writing, and imaginative arrangements. They tour as an acoustic duo: David on cello and guitar, and Adam on the 5-string fiddle. With individual storied careers in the americana scene under their belts, the brothers are finally teaming up to bring their experiences together. Their debut EP, Tugboats (2017), has garnered noteworthy praise, with Saving Country Music dubbing the duo, "the closest thing you can find to Simon & Garfunkel in this century.”

Over the last year, The Brother Brothers have generated steady momentum and buzz on the road, serving as carried support for both Sarah Jarosz and Lake Street Dive on multiple tours and directly supporting Shakey Graves, Big Thief, and The Felice Brothers. They have taped sessions for Daytrotter, Audiotree, and Music City Roots, as well as performed at The Kennedy Center, Folk Alliance, and the Americana Music Conference.

This fall The Brother Brothers will be supporting I'm With Her on a 26-date nationwide tour and releasing their own full length debut album on Compass Records on October 19, 2018.

Recent and upcoming festivals include, Fayetteville Roots Festival, Floyd Fest, Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion, Tønder, Shetland Folk, Celtic Connections, Rhythm and Blooms, Boats and Bluegrass, Utopia Fest, Red Wing Roots, and Kerville Folk Fest.
