The Holland Brothers are from the Piedmont region of NC. They play a style of music rooted in old school country and country blues, with close harmonies and blues harmonica. Drawing inspiration from Charlie Poole to Charlie Patton, from Muddy Waters to the Memphis Jug Band, from the country gospel sounds of Flatt and Scruggs and the Louvin Brothers, from the high lonesome sound of Bill Monroe, or from the pairing of Woody Guthrie and Cisco Houston, the Holland Brothers, together (as also in the 90's rock band Jennyanykind) and individually have appeared in publications and events such as No Depression, North Carolina’s Our State magazine, the North Carolina State Fair, Billboard Magazine, as well as the NY Times, continue to garner praise and gain new fans daily.
