The 13th season of Concerts on the Creek continues Friday, June 10 with a performance by the Maggie Valley Band from 7-9 p.m.
Hailing from North Carolina, two sisters and friends of the Maggie Valley band came together in the town they now identify themselves with. Each member learned their trade of music in the beautiful mountains of Maggie Valley, NC. Sisters Whitney & Caroline Miller grew up in a home where playing the piano was a daily requirement. 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 the direction of Grammy & Emmy nominated producer, David Mayfield. TMVB comes together to produce a sound affectionately referred to as “Dark Appalachian.”
In 2019, TMVB released the singles, “Silence” and “Something New” under the production of Jantzen Wray.
TMVB’s career has taken them as far as Canada to Southern Florida and partnering with great & diverse acts such as: David Mayfield, Jason Isbell, Infamous Stringdusters, Robert Randolph & the Family Band Black Lillies, Indigo Girls,Brent Cobb, Donna & the Buffalo Lonesome Riverband and many more!
