Twilite Broadcasters

Submit Correction Claim Band

The Twilite Broadcasters are the missing link between vintage country, old time, early bluegrass and rockabilly. Based in Asheville, North Carolina, the band creates traditional American music directly inspired by the likes of the Louvin Brothers and Bill Monroe. Close brother harmonies and deft switching between mandolin, fiddle, and guitar draw the listener backwards in time. Originally a duo, Adam Tanner (fiddle, mandolin, vocals) and Mark Jackson (guitar and vocals) have added the bass stylings of Chuck Shreve to the mix, livening up an already fiery live show.

Their 2011 album The Trail of Time (pictured) made a big splash in the Americana world, particularly in Europe where bloggers and DJs scrambled to pick up on the newcomers. Drawing comparisons to The Carolina Chocolate Drops, BR549, and the Chris Thile/Michael Daves duo, the Twilite Broadcasters combine exquisite musicianship and remarkable vocal harmonies with a fierce showmanship you won’t soon forget.
