Isle Newell offers world-class bluegrass Saturday

For the first time in its long history, the Isle Newell Fund for the Performing Arts has booked a bluegrass act.

Echo Valley, a family music phenomenon of five sisters and one brother, will perform this Saturday evening, March 9 at  6 p.m. the Holy Family Senior Center in Apalachicola.

Echo Valley has performed energetic and lively shows to countless audiences for the last 15 years, at music festivals, fairs, and in concert in numerous cities. Their entertaining and animated stage presence, coupled with tight harmonies and multi-instrument talents, makes for supreme entertainment.

Echo Valley plays bluegrass, Americana, folk and Grassicana with talents so diverse they do not use a playlist for shows, wanting to gauge the crowd for each performance. They were have been selected as an Official Showcase Band for the International Bluegrass Music Association, and sister Emily has won multiple state fiddler championships. Many band members have also won many competitions as individual musicians. 

Echo Valley has recorded in Nashville and has four releases to date. ““Not only is Echo Valley the most talented, creative, and disciplined young group I’ve had the privilege to record,” said Wes Homner, of Rosewood Studios. “But their integrity and devout faith gives them that extra sparkle which shines through their music and touches one’s heart and inspires the soul.” 

Tickets can be purchased in advance at for $20 or at the door for $25.
