Riggsbee Road is an all-female country and “new” grass band based in Raleigh, NC. Covering pop, country, and classic tunes with a big banjo sound and smooth vocal harmonies, this is one unique and powerful femme phenom.

Shelley Kelly, former lead singer with Huckleberry Blue, had a dream of creating an all-female project with a banjo signature  and full three-part harmonies. Long-time friend and keyboardist Laura Schuchart signed on immediately with a similar vision. Next, Skye Pixton joined on banjo, bringing the third harmony and a fresh bluegrass twist, followed by two dynamo musicians — Amy Hall on drums and Megan Maloney on bass. They are having a blast covering your favorite tunes in their unique style!

Riggsbee Road has played festivals, concert series events, and lots of other other NC stages, including the NC Association of Festivals & Events Showcase. We are thrilled to welcome them to Fayetteville and Cape Fear Botanical Garden.
