BIO

ABBY THE SPOON LADY
Abby the Spoon Lady is one of very few professional spoon players in the United States and has been a professional street performer for over a decade. Abby studied American folk percussion, music, and folklore while traveling the United States by foot and rail. Now an internationally known street performer, she plays with some of Asheville’s finest local and visiting performers at festivals, within venues, and right on the sidewalk. Along with finding her within various horror and short films, you can watch interviews with Abby in such documentaries as Nashville 2012, and also Buskin’ Blues, about the world-class street performing scene in Asheville, NC. She is currently President of the Asheville Buskers Collective and hosts a radio show on Asheville FM 103.3 called Busker Broadcast which centers around the street performance scene in Asheville, NC.

CHRIS RODRIGUES & THE SPOON LADY – BIO
Chris Rodrigues is a one-man band and multi-instrumentalist from the Asheville NC area.  Growing up learning traditional songs from his family, he has carved out his own unique blues- Appalachian style.  Abby the Spoon Lady is a folk percussionist, storyteller, and free speech activist.  After riding the rails for 8 years, she now lives in Asheville NC and is a full-time musician and street performer.  Together the two create a dynamic duo, with very complex rhythms.  Today they both enjoy not only playing original songs but also reworking and bringing new life to classic gospel songs.
