They eventually found themselves in Boone, NC, where they caught the attention of folk icon Doc Watson while playing in front of a pharmacy. He invited the band to play at his festival, MerleFest, a catalyst in launching the Grammy-winning career they enjoy today. Rolling Stone Magazine praises the band’s ability to “marry old-time string music and punk swagger.” This boundless energy and spirit have earned them the honor of being inducted as members of the Grand Ole Opry and has won two Grammy Awards: Best Folk Album for Remedy (2014) and Best Long Form Music Video for Big Easy Express (2013). Additionally, their classic single, “Wagon Wheel,” received the RIAA’s Platinum certification in 2013 for selling over 1,000,000 copies.

This is our way of saying THANK YOU for letting us serve you for 28 years! The gallery will be showing a variety of canvas sizes, ranging from 30 x 40 inches down to 6 by 6 inches, small enough to sit on a tabletop easel or inside bookshelves -- small sizes to give as GIFTS! Other GIFT IDEAS include: Locally made stained glass by Julie Neal; Mangum and New Day Pottery; Motawi craftsman-style fine art clay tiles; art prints, puzzles, notecards and Christmas cards by acclaimed folk artist Will Moses, heir to Grandma Moses; and He Gave Me Barn Cats, the debut novel of the gallery owner.

Alta Vista Gallery is located only 10 minutes from Boone or Banner Elk, N.C., in a National Register historic farmhouse at 2839 Broadstone Road, Valle Crucis -- between Mast Farm Inn and Mast Store Annex.
