Concert by ZOE & CLOYD
(Natalya Zoe Weinstein & John Cloyd Miller)
Natalya Zoe Weinstein and John Cloyd Miller exude the soulful charm of traditional American music. Founding members of the acclaimed Americana trio, Red June and long-time veterans of the Asheville music scene, the husband and wife duo recently released their debut duet album, Equinox, in April 2015. Featuring original and traditional repertoire spanning bluegrass, old-time and folk, this inaugural Zoe & Cloyd recording showcases the elegant simplicity of two instruments and two voices. The two can be found performing all across the country as well as leading workshops on traditional bluegrass and old-time music and songwriting.
John Cloyd Miller is a twelfth generation North Carolina native and the grandson of pioneering bluegrass fiddler and NC Folk Heritage Award winner, Jim Shumate. John’s foundation in traditional bluegrass and old-time Appalachian music coupled with his modern sensibility make him a natural musician and performer. He is well known for his haunting mountain voice as well as his instrumental prowess and award-winning songwriting. John is a 1st place winner of the prestigious Chris Austin Songwriting Contest and a recipient of an Artist Fellowship for songwriting by the North Carolina Arts Council.
Natalya Zoe Weinstein also comes from a musical family: her father is master jazz pianist and her grandfather was a professional klezmer musician. She is an accomplished fiddler in a variety of styles as well as an inspiring singer and songwriter. While trained classically in her home state of Massachusetts, she has spent many years fine-tuning her bluegrass and old-time fiddling with some of the top traditional musicians in North Carolina. Natalya is also a sought after instructor and is in high demand as a teacher and session musician.
Equinox named one of the “Outstanding Duo Albums of 2015″ by No Depression Magazine
“This is an enchanting debut CD by a young couple with immense respect and passion for traditional music, delivered with exquisite vocal and instrumental ability and the wisdom to play it simply and well.” – Bluegrass Unlimited
“I’m a sucker for great duo harmony singing, well-written originals, choice material, and fine playing—all of these are here on Equinox, the sweet and powerful first album by Zoe & Cloyd. I absolutely love it!” — Alice Gerrard
