John C. Campbell Folk School - John C. Campbell Free Concert - Wyatt Espalin & Trees Leave
WYATT ESPALIN & TREES LEAVE
Entertaining audiences in his hometown of Hiawassee, Georgia as early as age eight, Wyatt's passion for music was obvious, even from the barn room stage built by his grandfather. He and his brother Matt were known as "The Fiddling Brothers." While Matt hung up his fiddle and bow after high school, Wyatt was just getting started. Armed with a guitar and a desire to write songs, he paired with friends to form the group, Trees Leave. Combining their own twist on traditional bluegrass roots music led to a unique sound. Now with years of touring under their belts and two successful albums, Run (2008) and The Gospel of Hurt (2010).
Wyatt also performers solo and won the New Song Songwriting competition at the acclaimed L.E.A.F. festival in 2014. He also placed as a finalist in the Chris Austin Songwriting competition at Merlefest, the Rocky Mountain Folks Festival Songwriting Competition and Eddie's Attic Open Mic Shootout.
Performing solo or traveling with a revolving set of talented musicians as Trees Leave, Wyatt Espalin has found a way to continue writing and performing these songs that have longed to be free.
