About Folk Soul Revival
A modern band rooted in old-school southern sounds, Folk Soul Revival was formed in Southwest Virginia in 2008. The quintet has spent a decade growing a wide audience both here at home – where they’ve become a regular presence at local institutions like Bristol Rhythm, The Carter Family Fold, and Floydfest – and on the road, sharing shows with the late Dr. Ralph Stanley, Old Crow Medicine Show, Jason Isbell, Eric Church, and others. Logging roughly 100 performances a year, the road home always leads back to Bristol, the group’s birthplace, home, and muse. With songs about blue collar jobs, long work weeks, messy breakups, and richly-deserved weekends, Folk Soul Revival sources its material from everyday lives of rural Americans. The music is biographical, and while the stories may be specific to Folk Soul Revival, they’ll sound familiar to anyone who hails from the country’s forgotten pockets.
