About the Event
The John & Bobbie Wolfe Concert Series presents The Amanda Cook Band
Originally from Florida, now making her home in the Virginia Mountains, Amanda Cook acquired a love of bluegrass from her father, who played banjo throughout her childhood. In early 2007, Amanda formed the bluegrass group High Cotton with her father and received her first taste of performing, fueling a fire to record and tour professionally. In 2013, determined to create her unique sound, Amanda stepped out on her own and released her first solo album, One Stop Along the Road. In early 2017, Amanda signed with Mountain Fever Records and recorded her album On Deep Water followed by Point of No Return.
Her third full-length album, Narrowing the Gap, was released on Mountain Fever Records. The album appeared on Bluegrass Today's "Dave's Dozen" Top Album of 2021 by David Morris and KDHX "Bluegrass Breakdown" Radio’s Top 10 Albums of 2021. Numerous singles from Narrowing the Gap hit the radio charts, including "Get On Board," “West Virginia Coal," and "Lonesome Leaving Train." Amanda has created quite a loyal fan base through her palpable delivery of soul-wrenching songs. In addition, her light-hearted, down-to-earth style helps her create an undeniably strong connection with her audience. “Amanda Cook has emerged as one of the most dynamic female bluegrass vocalists and bandleaders of today,” says The Bluegrass Situation.
