Aberdeen Green performed at the festival, which included over 50 songwriters over the course of five days.

“I want to thank Carley and Amanda of Aberdeen Green for coming back to perform at Lyrics on the Lake and also congratulate them for winning the "Entertainer of the Festival,” says Ronnie Hess, one of the festival’s founders. “Thanks to their great talent, they were able to raise the most money for Children's Miracle Network.”

About Aberdeen Green:

Drawing from folk, country and jazz influences such as Patti Griffin, Joni Mitchell, Bob Dylan, Eva Cassidy, The Dixie Chicks and Alison Krauss, Aberdeen Green blends soaring harmonies with instinctive musicality and songwriting.

They performed at the 91st National Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony in Washington, D.C., where they opened for Aretha Franklin, Mariah Carey, Train, Janelle Monae, Renee Fleming and The Avett Brothers. 

The duo is set to release their highly anticipated debut album Crooked Road later this year. The 12-track collection was produced by the legendary Paul Worley (The Dixie Chicks, Lady Antebellum, Martina McBride) and his son Nick Worley. For more information, visitwww.aberdeengreenmusic.com.
