Our newest CD, Grandma's Bread was reviewed in the February 2018 issue of Bluegrass Unlimited.
Among other things they said was "...Bill and Maggie Anderson can still make the listener sit back and simply enjoy pleasant songs presented in a delightful manner." You can read the full review at http://bluegrassmusic.com/content/2018/reviews/bill-maggie-anderson/http://www.apple.com
We're working on a new CD but Covid has set us back quite a bit in that process. We hope to release it sometime this year.
Bill and Maggie Anderson bring to the stage an Americana music duet with guitar and dobro – story songs, bluegrass, gospel, and recently written music in the acoustic tradition. Their show is spiced with humor and audience appeal. They have years of experience performing in a variety of venues from festivals, large and small, coffee houses, churches, and Council of the Arts concerts, and have been part of live radio and TV programs. They have taken their music abroad with concerts at the European World of Bluegrass and a variety of venues in the Netherlands, Switzerland, Nova Scotia and Canada. Bill and Maggie have also appeared at the Birthplace of Country Music Pickin Porch in Bristol, VA, at the Carter Fold, and on the PBS broadcasted "Song of the Mountains" at the Lincoln Theater, Marion, VA. They play regularly at the Blue Ridge Music Center on the Blue Ridge Parkway, WPAQ's Merry-go-Round, WBRF's Blue Ridge Backroads, WCYN's Bluegrass Ramble radio shows and at the Floyd Country Store.
Their audience base has been steadily growing with exposure from their radio shows, their "Song of the Mountain" shows on PBS, and the airplay they have been receiving, especially with the release of their recent CDs Sweet Peace, Rest My Weary Feet and Grandma's Bread. Bill and Maggie have been a big hit among the locals and visitors as they share music as mid-day musicians at the Music Center on the Blue Ridge Parkway.
Bill and Maggie Anderson have 10 CDs to their credit which are available through CD baby and other online outlets.
In Bluegrass Unlimited, Less McIntyre said "For homespun vocals supported by dynamic instrumentation, it would be almost impossible to top the music of Bill and Maggie Anderson."
"Little in the way of music exceeds the beauty of male/female harmony and Bill and Maggie harmonize to perfection." Bluegrass Now
Morris Rowe, journalist, described their show at the Lincoln Theater, "Maggie and Bill Anderson of Galax, VA all spiffed up, open the show for Tom T. Hall, great conversationalists and entertainers."
