Virginia Hollow Bio (Short Bio)
Virginia Hollow is a band and a sound born from the hills, valleys and mountains of Appalachia. Their performances and music take you on a journey fraught with raw emotions and stories of love, trust, betrayal, and longing. When all is said and done, the haunting melodies of Carrie Hinkley's soulful voice are hard to shake off and instead keep returning and playing in one's mind, like an untamed mantra of beauty and tragedy. This is a band whose time has come to be reckoned with.
