Chipola Artist Series Opens Sept. 19


MARIANNA—The Chipola Artist Series opens Thursday, Sept. 19, with The Hunts, a Virginia-based band of seven siblings who’ve been playing harmony-laced folk music together almost their entire lives.

Twin sisters and five brothers, ages 19 to 28, learned to sing and play violin as youngsters and spent much of their childhood performing in their community. After widening their following playing at theaters, festivals and universities around the country—and teaching themselves to play mandolin, piano, ukulele, banjo, and drums—The Hunts started songwriting and have honed their sound, crafting positive songs that move audiences. Their songs are full of joy and uplifting themes. Learn more at A Meet the Artist Reception will be hosted by Tyndall Federal Credit Union.
