The music of Amy Gallatin and Stillwaters is an exuberant blend of country, folk, bluegrass and western swing done in that old-fashioned country duet style. Gallatin's shimmering, heartfelt vocals brand each song with soulful sincerity. Her diverse influences range from old and contemporary cowboy tunes learned out West, to great country artists like Emmylou Harris, Merle Haggard, Loretta Lynn, and the Everly Brothers, with even a dash of blues influence thrown in from Koko Taylor, Katie Wilson, and BB King. Gallatin handles it all with skill, charm, understated passion and a masterful touch.
"Gallatin brings a truth and a yearning to her voice that translates into real country traditionalism." -- Roger Catlin, Hartford Courant
Gallatin and Stillwaters have taken the stage at some of the most prestigious venues in the U.S., Canada, Mexico, and Europe.Their 2009 tour of The Netherlands, Germany, Czech Republic, Switzerland and Denmark--the band's fourth overseas tour--drew extremely enthusiastic crowds at house concerts, music clubs, theaters, country and bluegrass festivals. Twice they have had the honor of representing the United States as the featured performers at the European World of Bluegrass convention in The Netherlands.
