Blue Ridge GA - Roxie Watson Concert at Live Music is Better

Roxie Watson

Roxie Watson is a five-piece string band from Decatur and Atlanta, GA, who play what they like to call "alterna-grass" music that mixes three- and four-part harmonies with elements of old country, Appalachian music, hymns, and bluegrass, without adhering to the traditions of any one genre.

Lisa Love of Georgia Music Magazine and the Georgia Music Foundation described the band by saying, "When you have a group of women who are natural story-tellers, who sooth their aggressive musical chops with beautiful harmonies, temper their rock-n-roll sensibilities with an understanding of Appalachian tradition, and come off as a little bit Keith Richards, a little bit Bill Monroe, you get Roxie Watson." The group formed in 2007 as a just-for-kicks opportunity for long-time friends Beth Wheeler, Lenny Lasater, Linda Bolley, Sonia Tetlow and Becky Shaw to get together and play songs they loved.

But what started out as just porch settin' and cover song playing evolved organically over the years, through the word-of-mouth support of an ever-growing group of loyal fans, into one of the finest original bands in the Southeast, regularly selling out storied songwriting venues from Eddie's Attic in Decatur, GA to the Bluebird Cafe in Nashville, TN.
