“A musical collaboration that demands to be heard.” – Bluegrass Unlimited Magazine
Hailing from opposite ends of the Appalachian mountains, Zoe & Cloyd is renowned fiddler and vocalist Natalya Zoe Weinstein and award-winning songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and vocalist John Cloyd Miller. Their show is as diverse as their upbringing: coming from a lineage of klezmer and jazz musicians, Natalya trained classically in her home state of Massachusetts before moving south in 2004. John, a twelfth generation North Carolinian and grandson of pioneering bluegrass fiddler, Jim Shumate, is a 1st place winner of the prestigious Chris Austin Songwriting Contest as well as an Artist Fellowship recipient for songwriting from the North Carolina Arts Council. Long-time fixtures of the Asheville, NC music scene, Zoe & Cloyd recently appeared in Season 5 of the nationally syndicated PBS show, David Holt’s State of Music, and their fourth studio album, Rebuild, produced by Jon Weisberger, was released on Organic Records in October of 2021. Zoe & Cloyd delight audiences with soaring harmonies, heartfelt songwriting and rousing instrumentals, seamlessly combining original bluegrass, klezmer, and folk with sincerity and zeal. They are joined by IBMA award winners and master musicians, Bennett Sullivan on banjo and Kevin Kehrberg on bass.
