Savannah Music Festival: Cherryholmes Live

Press Cherryholmes

Airs Thursday, August 20 at 8:00 p.m. When the family band Cherryholmes burst onto the scene seemingly out of nowhere during the first few years of the new millennium, they quickly developed a loyal audience, followed by a wealth of honors and awards. On January 12, 2011, after more than a decade together, Cherryholmes surprised the music world by announcing that they had decided to disband the group and would be performing their last show in May of 2011. In this episode, we listen to Cherryholmes' performance at the Savannah Music Festival.
