Description:
The Floyd Country Store presents Flatt Lonesome in concert on Saturday, December 8, 2018.

From the moment of their brilliant self-titled debut in 2013, it’s been clear that Flatt Lonesome is a runaway train. Multiple International Bluegrass Music Association, Society for the Preservation of Bluegrass Music of America, and Dove nominations and awards, top charting songs, Billboard charting albums, countless media appearances (including becoming familiar faces on the legendary Grand Ole Opry stage), and a demanding tour schedule, all combine in testimony to the phenomenon that is Flatt Lonesome.

Flatt Lonesome has enjoyed a nearly unprecedented trip to place them among bluegrass’ elite. Bluegrass Today calls them “the sort of band bluegrass needs right now” and says their brand of original bluegrass is “some of the freshest our genre has been offered in a while.” Stellar picking and heartfelt songs centered around beautiful sibling harmony have made Flatt Lonesome a hit among bluegrass fans both young and old and their vibrant, youthful spirit with careful respect towards tradition has earned the praise of peers twice their age.

Mature beyond their years (both musically and professionally), Flatt Lonesome has already reached success levels comparable to bands that have been playing for decades. Their whirlwind ride has included being named Emerging Artists of the Year by the International Bluegrass Music Association (IBMA), releasing a trio of successful albums, being heard on bluegrass radio across the country and world, and playing some of the biggest bluegrass events on the continent. Flatt Lonesome band members Kelsi, Buddy, and Charli Robertson began performing as youngsters alongside their parents in the gospel group, Sandy Creek Revival. As the Robertson siblings grew and the band’s schedule became more demanding, their parents encouraged the talented siblings to go out on their own and pursue their dreams.

Kelsi Robertson Harrigill (mandolin), Buddy Robertson (guitar), and Charli Robertson (fiddle) founded Flatt Lonesome in 2011 along with neighbor, Dominic Illingworth (bass) and longtime friend, Michael Stockton (dobro). Paul Harrigill (banjo) joined in early 2012. After the band’s debut at the 2011 SPBGMA Band Competition where they took third place, interest began growing in these young bluegrass performers from Callahan, Florida.
