Deep River is coming to Ambrose West on Friday, Jan, 24 to perform The Eagles’ 20 Greatest Hits.
The show will be held from 8 p.m. until 10 p.m. at 312 Haywood Road in West Asheville.
After hearing Deep River sing one of their own compositions, 'Remember Always', live on the Bell Buckle (Tennessee) Jamboree Radio Show, local resident Charlie Louvin of Louvin Brothers fame told the country vocal group, "I'd like to hear y'all play that song on the Opry." Although they haven't yet had that opportunity, Deep River has sung with Country Music Hall of Famer Vince Gill, as well as opened for country star Mark Wills and the 'Mother of Bluegrass', Wilma Lee Cooper.
Founding members Sandy Howard and Sharon Lewis have been performing together since April 1993 in Nashville, Tennessee, and the current line-up made it's Asheville, North Carolina debut in August, 2007.
While in Nashville, Sandy and Sharon recorded three CDs, wrote or co-wrote eight songs, two of which, 'Civil War' and 'Silver Eagle', received 'honorable mention' from Music Row magazine's Robert K. Oermann, and one of those, 'Silver Eagle', received a little radio airplay on small market country stations around the US. More recently, 'Civil War' has been played by Asheville's KISS Country 99 FM.
The name 'Deep River' conjures up thoughts about the natural circle of life, and that's exactly how one might describe their music---stories of love and loss told in the context of family-style harmonies and danceable rhythms.
