At the heart of Grits & Soul are song-crafters Anna Kline and John Looney. Based in Asheville, North Carolina, they take the influences of mountain bluegrass and classic country and fuse it with Mississippi soul and blues, for a distinctly Americana Soulgrass sound. Since the release of their debut album “Flood Waters,” they received coveted invitations to perform at Merlefest, Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion, Albino Skunk Festival, and Suwannee Springfest, amongst others. They recently opened for Jim Lauderdale at the Ingles 4th of July celebration downtown Asheville, and the Hackensaw Boys for Asheville’s RiverMusic concert series. Other notable appearances include Magnolia Fest 2015 and Country Festival in Sint-Truiden, Belgium.
