Coddle Creek is a high energy creekgrass band from the foothills of NC in beautiful Coddle Creek! The band plays traditional bluegrass music with a kick. They like to play fast and let their light shine bright! The sweet harmonies and dueling acoustic guitars of longtime friends Travis Weddington and Adam Lawrence are like no other.
Travis Weddington is from Coddle Creek, NC. He grew up playing traditional bluegrass with his family. Travis then got bit by the blues bug, under the wing of Rusty Barkley in the Part Time Blues Band. Shortly thereafter, Travis started ripping up electric guitar leads for the "improvisational project band” Duk Tan. His vocals, songwriting and acoustic guitar licks are the icing on the cake in Coddle Creek.
With his original songs, vocals, and acoustic guitar picking, Adam Lawrence is an equal part of the sweet sounds of Coddle Creek. After hearing recordings at a young age of his father, Jack Lawrence, and the late Doc Watson, Adam dove into the guitar and hasn't looked back. He has had the honor to play on stage with many of the great flatpickers of our time, which only increases his desire to play. Adam’s influences include the late Doc Watson and his father, Jack Lawrence, to Django Reinhardt, Clarence White, Bryan Sutton, Stephen Mougin and far too many others to include. Adam also enjoys branching out with many different genres, from progressive blues and most recently, jam bands. Adam continues to redefine and create his own style of flatpicking with traveling and playing any kind of music nationwide.
Dave Mclendon, our very own veteran musician and long time bass player for Duk Tan was the obvious choice to join Coddle Creek. He hails from the backwoods of Richfield, NC where you can hear the slapping of the cat gut on the hollow body of a sexy stand up fiddle off in the distance, if all is quiet and you put your ear to the ground...Just listen, you'll hear it!
Steven Davidson has been all around this great country of ours and played with some of the living legends of our time. He's toured with Spongecake and the Fluff Ramblers holding down the low end but barely holding his eyes open behind the wheel of their slow moving van! Steven has twice the strings now and he's using every one of them and chucking his way along with the Coddle Creek crew! He's a well rounded musician and the perfect fit for this group of misfits, plus, the Mandolin makes him look alot bigger than the bass does!
See y'all at the show!!!

Hailing from North Carolina, two sisters and friends of the Maggie Valley band came together in the town they now identify themselves with.

Daily requirements turned to passion as they hit the streets to street busk. After years of busking, The Maggie Valley Band was officially formed and decided to take it inside-to venues. TMVB released their album "The Hardest Thing" in 2018 under under the direction of Grammy & Emmy nominated producer, David Mayfield. TMVB comes together to produce a sound affectionately referred to as "Dark Appalachian".
