ABINGDON, VA — The Brother Boys perform in the Keyser-Aday Theater on the campus of Virginia Highlands Community College, Abingdon, Virginia, Oct. 16 at 7 p.m.

Ed Snodderly and Eugene Wolf began their brother-duet singing back in the 1990s, releasing three critically acclaimed recordings; “Plow,” “Presley’s Grocery” and “Mulehead.”

Years before the term Americana was born, they called their music New Hillbilly, which sounded good at the time; a way to distinguish the blending of country, bluegrass and rockabilly. The Brother Boys have a knack for this old sound. The emotions and country heartache tones match the landscape of East Tennessee, where they both grew up.

“The Brother Boys sound like hillbillies whose moonshine is spiked with acid,” says People Magazine.

Students are admitted free, $10 for the public.
