The Currys are a home-grown acoustic folk trio born and bred in the Florida panhandle. Incorporating elements of country, bluegrass, blues, and rock, the Currys music showcases tight vocal harmonies, thoughtful songwriting, and a strong emphasis on rollicking live performance. They’ve been featured on PBS, toured Ireland, guest starred during the headlining set of the 60th Florida Folk Fest, and collected a full back-up band. The Currys have a well stocked library of original songs including three solo records, an eponymous EP, and two full length records. With a love of live performance, you can catch The Currys serenading crowds up and down the East Coast.
