Dehlia Low is a new Asheville-based band focused on early country,
bluegrass, and original music. Their songs feature hard-hitting vocals
with tight harmonies backed up beautifully by masterful dobro and
mandolin playing, lively fiddling, and a booming upright bass. Dehlia
Low performs original songs as well as classic and modern bluegrass and
old country numbers influenced strongly by Hazel Dickens, the Stanley
Brothers, James King, and others.
