Berryfield has become one of the fastest rising regional Americana acoustic acts. Murphy McNeill, Dean Overman and Al Simmons continue to expand their performing base in listening venues and festivals throughout North Carolina. Their three-part harmonies and arranging skills give this trio a style that is uniquely Berryfield. The intertwining of Al’s fingerpicking and Dean’s flat picking and mandolin create an interesting musical backdrop. All three are seasoned lead vocalists which adds to their show’s variety.
Murphy has been performing with her talented musical family since she was old enough to hold a microphone. She spent four years studying music business at Appalachian State University and was strongly influenced by the traditional folk music of the North Carolina Mountains Dean and Al’s musical friendship has continued since first crossing paths almost four decades ago as original members of the Rockinhorse Band. They had two singles on the country charts and one album release. After Rockinhorse, Al continued songwriting and performing as a solo artist and Dean pursued his love of bluegrass in Bluegrass Borderline and the Lew Robertson Band.
Their current CD release “You Can Fly” demonstrates their versatility of style. Included are originals as well as arrangements of their signature classics reimagined as only Berryfield can do. Their live show with rich harmonies and unique musical synergy is not to be missed.
