“A mix of virtuoso musicianship and original songwriting that plays as well in a hipster coffeehouse as it does in a small town concert hall.” LARRY GROCE, MOUNTAIN STAGE.
Blue Yonder is a band from Charleston, West Virginia, that takes strands of early country music – from swing to honky-tonk, bluegrass and rockabillly – and weaves them together with award-winning original compositions and a contemporary feel. The group features three seasoned musicians each with distinctive and notable skills: singer and songwriter John Lilly, national guitar champion Robert Shafer, and bassist Will Carter. The band’s debut recording, Bittersweet Road, which features all original songs, reached #2 on the Freeform American Roots Radio charts in late 2013.
