About This Event
The Walkaways are a metropolitan DC-based band, making original music since 2006. The band released its third full-length album entitled “After the Fall” in 2017. This follows Fifty Left to Burn (2008) and Romance and Medicine (2012), the latter recorded and co-produced with Grammy-nominated producer John Jennings (Mary Chapin Carpenter, Indigo Girls, The Rankin Family, Iris Dement). From the beginning The Walkaways’ sound has been called “alt-country” (Washington Post, Washington City Paper, Washingtonian Magazine)—that description still fits pretty well. Their songs draw more broadly, however, from Americana, folk, roots rock, country, indie, and classic rock. The Walkaways will be joined by Wicked Sycamore, an all-female trio hailing from the Baltimore/DC area, consisting of Juliette Bell on guitar, Lainie Gray on mandolin, and Madeline Waters on cello. They have a contemporary folk sound with a mischievous edge that is grounded in traditional roots, Americana, and bluegrass.
