Laura Blackley and The Wildflowers (duo)
Laura Blackley is a singer, songwriter and purveyor of high lonesome Appalachian blues and soul. She plays ‘folk tunes with a rock n roll soundtrack’ with her band the Wildflowers. Look for a recording from them soon. Their forthcoming album, titled “Tell It To the Darkness” is due in April 2017.

She also sings classic country duets and dance tunes with The Old Chevrolette Set, a fun band also from Asheville, NC.

Blackley was an on-air host and producer for seven years at WNCW 88.7 FM in Spindale, NC, spotlighting regional music, women in roots music, and bluegrass and old-time.

She currently works (in addition to her gig schedule) as a Teaching Artist with Musicworks!, a program that utilizes music and musicianship to teach life skills to young children.

A born storyteller, she has played in many bands, traveled many back roads and interstates and enjoys digging up old tunes and hearing the stories behind them. She believes that music has a healing power and is a communal act, and is very much looking forward to the next gig.
