Gig Information

Live music by local musicians and special guests on the 1st Wed of the month at the Tin Hut Country Hotel 12 km north of Featherston on State Hwy 2. In March we are hosting a country/ bluegrass music playing duo Gene and Gayla from Virginia. Gene and Gayla Mills who play new roots music—modern folk tinged with bluegrass and country, featuring Gene’s award-winning original songs. In their latest album, Walk on Solid Ground, G&G appeal to the head and heart with original songs exploring the breadth and nuance of life. Gene’s songs tell rich stories, many based on real people from Virginia—miners, farmers, lovers, and soldiers. The song "Another Day" has won two songwriting awards, and "No Dominion Over Me" has become a rallying cry for those fighting the Atlantic Coast Pipeline. Gene and Gayla's debut album, If Stones Could Talk, reached #5 on the Roots Music Report Folk Chart and #11 on the Folk DJ chart.

Gene has won over twenty country, folk, and instrumental songwriting awards, with several award-winners appearing on his debut album ​Waiting for Rain. He is also an accomplished flatpicking guitarist and lead singer. Gayla’s bass playing—solid, rhythmic, and melodic—is accompanied by her tender harmonies. Her book Making Music for Life recounts their musical journey, then provides readers with hundreds of ideas to help them do more with music.

Married over 30 years, Gene and Gayla have been playing as a duo since 2004.

​“The dynamic between the both of them is just beautiful. It’s a sweet thing to watch.”
— Karen Atkinson, WHAN Radio.
