KPTZ Presents: I Draw Slow
KPTZ Radio Port Townsend presents a benefit fundraiser on St. Patrick's Day Weekend featuring Dublin Ireland's five piece band "I Draw Slow".  Roots/Americana music with a Celtic cadence featuring the sibling harmonies of Louise and Dave Holden.

Dublin, Irelands I Draw Slow has already won the adoration of fans in their home country and North America by combining American folk and Irish storytelling traditions with close-harmony vocals, intriguing instrumentation and compelling subject matter. And on their debut with CompassRecords, Turn Your Face to the Sun,releasedApril 21, 2017, the band adds even more depth to their sound and songwriting. This time out, sibling vocalists Dave and Louise Holden, with Dave on acoustic guitar, Adrian Hart on violin, Colin Derham on clawhammer banjo and Konrad Liddy on double bass, chose to color their blend of vocals and strings with brass and percussion. They also chose to address a theme of loss, through lyrics that examine both the darker side of human nature and the goodness of redemption.The band first drew attention beyond Irelands shores with their 2011 release, Redhills.Fueled by a prominent Spotify playlist placement and a video suggesting both 1890s bordello and 1920s speakeasy, the song Goldmine became the albums breakout track.Their follow-up album, 2014s White Wave Chapel,reached No. 2 on Irelands iTunes chart, driven in part by the video for Valentine, which featured Game of Thrones star Aidan Gillen. In the meantime, they established themselves as festival standouts, appearing at MerleFest, Pickathon, Wintergrass, RockyGrass, Grey Fox, Red Wing, Edmonton Folk Fest and High Sierra Music Festival to name a few. Theyve also appeared on many radio shows, including the syndicated Mountain Stage.Their energetic live performances and inventive combination of Appalachian and Irish roots music has drawn so much support, they were able to completely crowd-fund the recording of Turn Your Face to the Sunwhichthey tracked over one weekend, camping out in a house in County Wicklow, Ireland, with engineer Brian Masterson (U2, Van Morrison). It captures I Draw Slow at their best when theyre all together, separated only by air. Speaking of air, first-time IDraw Slow listeners ought to be warned: This band very well might take their breath away. And they wont even mind.With White Wave Chapel, their best album to date, under their belt, it seems a matter of time before I Draw Slow will dominate the global folk scene. Peter McGuire, Huffington Post UK"For an all-acoustic group, I Draw Slow sure do have a fully realized sound. May we recommend "Valentine," "Grand Hotel" and "Don't She Run."-The Bluegrass Situation"Its as gritty as it is beautiful"CMT Edge

Their lyrics are evocative and imaginative, yet remarkably in an entirely American idiom and vernacular no Gaelic transposed to fit the hills and hollers. Songs like Bread & Butter and Hide & Seek resonate rhythmically and lyrically...-Sing-Out MagazineTheir writing is skilled, rich and wonderfully mature...the album is a delight...-KDHXI Draw Slow is a high-powered bluegrass band from Ireland, who discovered the genre while busking in Australia. Perfect for an all-American musical mish-mash of Appalachian Mountain music, blues, jazz and traditional country!
