The Burley Boys are a trio comprised of members of The 4th Street NiteOwls and The Weal and Woe who play music of the “country brother” acts which emerged in the 1930s. They draw their inspiration (and much of their repertoire) from such close harmony duos as the Monroe, Delmore and Louvin Brothers, The Blue Sky Boys, as well as those who followed. Close harmony with religious fervor. Dale Burleyson, Mark Deffenbaugh and Russell Scholl share vocal and instrumental duties.
About The Weal and Woe
The Weal and Woe is a New York-based country/Americana quartet. In January 2012 the band released a seven-song EP titled "The One To Blame," recorded and co-produced by Emmy-nominated artist Rench (Gangstagrass). New York Music Daily writes, "The guy/girl close harmonies of guitarist Russell Scholl and bassist Barbara Ann have an unaffected southern charm, soaring over an early 1950s style backdrop with fiddle, lap steel and occasional resonator guitar. Ex-Moonlighter Mark Deffenbaugh's lap steel playing is absolutely off the hook." Rounded out by fiddler extraordinaire Jason Cade, the band plays a tasteful mix of classic and original country / roots music.
