Redleg Husky is a country, bluegrass, and blues trio from Asheville, North Carolina. Since its inception in 2012, the band has been performing its unique blend of American music in barrooms, theaters, and festivals throughout the Southeast and beyond. The group has released three recordings of original music in that time, a self-titled EP in 2013, its full-length debut, Carolina in 2014, and a second LP, My Old Heart in 2016.
Throughout its short time together, the band has been garnering rave reviews, including features in Asheville’s and Boone’s High Country Press, and regular airplay on regional stations WNCW, WRIR, and WTJU. The group has also opened for a number of prominent national acts, including The Tillers, The Howlin’ Brothers, and Kim Lenz and the Jaguars.
Redleg Husky features Tim McWilliams on rhythm and lead guitar, banjo, and vocals, and Son the Bassman on bass and vocals and Nick Marino on drums. The band has previously included co-founder and songwriter, vocalist, and multi-instrumentalist Misa Giroux, between 2012 and 2016, and vocalist, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist David Funderburk from 2012 to 2014. With more than five hundred shows already under their belt, Tim, Son and Nick are excited to continue their musical evolution, developing new takes on classic songs, bringing an impassioned live show to audiences throughout the region, and pushing musical boundaries within the many sub-genres of Americana.
