BIOGRAPHY

An acoustic duo out of Chapel Hill, NC. The two UNC seniors who make up the band take a bluegrass influenced approach to their music. Rather than filling out a full bluegrass band, though, Sturges & McGeehan typically operate as a two man folk act. Their RPM Challenge album, "No Light to Guide," represents the first recorded collection of original music by the band. They recorded it in the audio lab at the Undergraduate Library at UNC. Now that the album is finished, they will be taking these songs around Chapel Hill and Carrboro to play various gigs. If you are interested in booking Sturges & McGeehan, please contact frank.sturges@gmail.com
