Letters To Abigail is an acoustic Americana band fronted by songwriters, James Harrell of Snowville, VA and Kelli Redmond of Asheville, NC. Harrell and Redmond have been writing together since before the release of their debut album, "Say Anything" in 2013. Their first recording effort donned such pros as Adam Steffey (Allison Kraus, The Boxcars) on mandolin, Nicky Sanders (Steep Canyon Rangers) on fiddle, David Holt (Doc Watson) on clawhammer banjo and Doyle Grisham (Jimmy Buffet, Pedal Steel Hall of Fame) on pedal steel and achieved a spot on WNCW's Top 100 Albums of the Year. Since then the two have been touring all over the Southeast, Northeast to the Midwest playing shows and festivals as a duo, trio and as a four piece band. In 2016 Letters To Abigail were back in the world renowned studios at Echo Mountain recording a new batch of songs, their self titled sophomore album also grabbing a Top 100 spot. Inspired and influenced by the sounds and songs of classic country, bluegrass, folk and singer songwriters they have created a unique and refreshing sound. Their harmonies are unmatched and their songs are intelligent and thoughtful , but still keeping their performances fun, entertaining and interesting. Letters To Abigail has plenty of original material, but can also pull out some great covers like "Jackson" made famous by Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash , Ryan Adams  "Oh My Sweet Carolina" and even some great bluegrass and old time tunes. They are a perfect fit for all venues, festivals, house concerts, bars and restaurants, private and corporate events. LTA can be anywhere from a 2 to 4 piece band depending on the budget and needs of the venue.
