We are thrilled to announce that Zoe Speaks was just selected by South Arts to participate in its Performing Arts Discovery Program, for which we'll be traveling to Florida this fall to perform for international presenters from venues in Australia, Switzerland, France, Belgium, Ireland and the UK, sharing some of the history, context, and culture that make our region’s music so rich. Onward and upward! Thanks to the Kentucky Arts Council for nominating us and to all of our friends for supporting us! We can't wait to represent Kentucky overseas!
Original roots music from the heart of Kentucky.
Zoe Speaks consists of Kentuckians Mitch Barrett, Carla Gover, and Owen Reynolds, (and for larger shows, fiddler/vocalist Zoey Barrett and multi-instrumentalist Arlo Barnette) who draw on their deep roots in the region to put their own spin on everything from traditional ballads to finely-crafted originals. A smooth, mellow instrumental mix lays the background for the close vocal harmonies that are a defining feature of their sound. A veritable songwriting powerhouse, their song contest wins include the Telluride Troubador Contest, Merlefest's Chris Austin Contest, Rocky Mountain Folks Fest, and Kerrville New Folk, among others. A staple on the Kentucky music scene for over a decade with three successful CDs under their belt, they are back together and set to release a new album this summer. They accompany themselves on guitar, claw hammer banjo, upright bass, and sometimes dulcimer and clogging feet.
