Dublin roots band I Draw Slow has been garnering praise around the globe since the release of their Top 10 selling album Redhills in 2012. Now their new album, White Wave Chapel, is all the buzz at home and overseas with their unique sound, bringing together Irish tradition with modern Americana while staying rooted in the old time style of Appalachia. Their impact abroad is redrawing the map for these Irish/Americana songwriters.
The UK press describes, I Draw Slow as “American top league equivalents” destined “to blow the opposition away”, drawing favorable comparisons with Gillian Welch and Alison Krauss. While filling the airwaves on tastemaker stations at home and abroad, the band has been winning fans on both sides of the Atlantic, playing legendary festivals such as Celtic Connections, MerleFest, Pickathon, RockyGrass, Grey Fox, Wintergrass and more.
I Draw Slow is a five-piece outfit comprising vocals, guitar, fiddle, banjo, and double bass. Holden siblings Dave (guitar) and Louise (vocals) have been writing together for two decades. In 2008 the pair teamed up with violinist Adrian Hart, clawhammer banjo player Colin Derham, and double bassist Konrad Liddy to form I Draw Slow.
