An Evening with The Holland Brothers


Rough House Records recording artists the Holland Brothers are from the Piedmont region of NC. They play a style of music rooted in old school country and country blues, with close harmonies and blues harmonica. They have recorded music for and appeared in HBO’s Righteous Gemstones in 2019, 2021 and 2023. They also appeared in Apple TV’s show Dickinson in 2021, having recorded a song for that show as well. They are currently working with Rough House Productions on a vinyl box set of songs from their entire music history, due out in summer 2024. Similar to the Piedmont songsters of old, the Holland Brothers, who achieved major label fame in the 1990’s with their Chapel Hill band Jennyanykind (Elektra), play a variety of styles and songs. Their sound is rooted in old-time country and country blues with aspects of vaudeville, ragtime and jazz that includes choice covers and inspired originals. Drawing inspiration from Charlie Poole to Charlie Patton, from Muddy Waters to the Memphis Jug Band, from the country gospel sounds of Flatt and Scruggs and the Louvin Brothers, from the high lonesome sound of Bill Monroe, or from the pairing of Woody Guthrie and Cisco Houston, the Holland Brothers, who have appeared in No Depression, North Carolina’s Our State magazine, Billboard, and the NY Times, continue to garner praise and gain new fans daily.
