My New Favorites are the "favorites" of festival-goers, brewery patrons and music lovers from Roanoke to Knoxville. Their shows are all about energy, musicianship, energy, great songwriting and more energy. They feature a sound that is rootsy enough for Americana purists and progressive enough for folks who are ready to hear Michael Jackson played on the old time clawhammer banjo. Led by award-winning songwriter Jeffrey Benedict, the band is soulful, introspective, wide-open, fun-loving and funny. Top-notch fiddling from the young virtuoso, Westley Harris, and sweet vocal harmonies from bass-player supreme Amy Benedict round out the sound. My New Favorites has been featured at Merlefest, Bristol Rhythm & Roots, the Blue Plum Festival and the PBS-TV series, "Song of The Mountains.
