Sweet Potato Pie band is a premiere all-female band that has been entertaining audiences for nearly two decades with their classy blend of Americana, Bluegrass, Country and Gospel music mixed together in a style they call “sweetgrass”. Having made appearances on PBS, the Food Network, and worldwide radio broadcasts, they are hailed as the “Lennon Sisters of Bluegrass”. Their show revolves around their beautiful 3-part harmonies, hard driving instrumentals, and down home humor and story telling. With classic songs from Patsy Cline, Bill Monroe, Flatt and Scruggs and other legends mixed with their chart topping original songs, audiences are in for a sensational night of family entertainment.
The group is sponsored in part by the NC Sweet Potato Growers . Their relationship with the agricultural industry provides them with unique opportunities to promote agriculture as they sing their way around the country. Their music was selected in 2015 for use in elementary classrooms to teach students about North Carolina’s agricultural crops. Sweet Potato Pie’s performance style and music is featured in various high school music curriculums in the state.
