Storytelling through song is an American tradition. Acclaimed Cincinnati songsmiths Young Heirlooms take you on a nostalgic journey with their sentimental, heartfelt original tunes. Music and lyrics are based on family history, personal experience, and adventures on the run.
Anticipate the timelessness of bygone musical eras and dynamic lyrical themes. The antique instrumentation comes with a contemporary kick. This six piece band has the ability to resonate with a wide scope of audiences, giving them a do-not-miss reputation throughout the Midwest.
"With their beautiful contemporary spin on Folk music and compelling, intimate, shut-everyone-up-instantly live performances, the band has been a regular highlight at past MidPoint Music Festivals. Christopher Robinson (guitar, mandolin, vocals) and Kelly Fine (vocals, guitar, mandolin) formed the band in 2010 after initially meeting at a music festival in Dayton, Ohio. And after releasing a self-titled debut album in 2013, the six-member group quickly became a favorite locally, earning regular bookings - yes, including festival gigs - as well as airplay on beloved Northern Kentucky radio station WNKU. Young Heirlooms are currently getting ready for the release of its follow-up album, “The Hammer,” the first glimpse of which was the sublime single “Bury Me with My Hammer,” which shimmers like
an Indie Folk version of Fleetwood Mac. The track was issued on vinyl this summer with a cover of the Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young classic “Ohio” on the B-side."
