ABOUT THE BAND
My New Favorites feature a mix of award-winning originals, honky-tonk and Appalachian roots music that is authentic enough for purists and progressive enough for folks who are ready to hear the Allman Bros. played on the old time clawhammer banjo. Led by award-winning songwriter Jeff Benedict, MNF is danceable, fun-loving and funny. They feature top-notch fiddling from virtuoso Westley Harris, and sweet vocal harmonies from bass-player supreme Amy Benedict. Jason Carpenter, a one-man-band percussionist, rounds out the sound. The band has been featured at many festivals, concert halls and music venues in Tennessee, North Carolina and Virginia and is looking forward to playing a full schedule of shows in 2024 and beyond.
