About the band...

Amy Gallatin, born in Muscle Shoals, Alabama, lived in several states before settling in the West, where she was raised. During her ten years in Idaho and Montana, she had had the good fortune of being able to work at two of her loves in life: horses and music; Amy helped to organize the horseback riding programs and was the featured entertainer at various guest ranches. Her performing background had been as a solo artist out West prior to her meeting some Connecticut musicians while wintering in New England in 1992. With that Connecticut connection came the opportunity to tour as a working unit, so Amy packed her guitar and moved east in the fall of 1993 to pursue her music. Eight albums later--including a "Live in Europe" album and two projects recorded in Nashville with ace producer Rich Adler--Amy Gallatin and her band Stillwaters have taken the stage at some of the most prestigious venues in the U.S., Canada, Mexico, UK, and Europe.Their recent tour of The Netherlands, Germany, Czech Republic, Switzerland and Denmark--the band's fifth--drew extremely enthusiastic crowds at house concerts, music clubs, theaters, country & bluegrass festivals. They have twice had the honor of representing the United States as the featured performers at the European World of Bluegrass convention in The Netherlands.

Amy is at home singing various musical styles -- country, folk, bluegrass or western swing--branding each song with soulful sincerity. Her influences are diverse, ranging from old and contemporary cowboy tunes learned out West, to great country artists like Emmylou Harris, Merle Haggard, Loretta Lynn, and the Everly Brothers.

Roger Williams started playing the resophonic, Dobro style guitar in1963, when he was just a young teenager. Within the first year, he had already debuted with The Lilly Brothers and Don Stover at the Hillbilly Ranch in Boston, Mass. where they had performed for nearly two decades. Since then he has gone on to perform and/or record with many well respected bluegrass and folk acts on the national and international circuit, including Don Stover,White Mountain Bluegrass, Hazel Dickens, Joe Val, Bill Harrell, Wyatt Rice, Delia Bell & Bill Grant, Southern Rail, Ray Legere, Mark Schatz, Mac Wiseman,The New England Bluegrass Band, Salamander Crossing, Amy Gallatin and Stillwaters, Slavek Hanzlik, Mark Erelli, Hiro Arita and others. Career highlights include thirteen overseas tours with various artists, including a performance at the prestigious Dobro Festival in Slovakia, and teaching workshops during Bluegrass Week at the Augusta Heritage Center in Elkins, WV. Roger has recorded three solo projects, Fireball, Rt. 2 To Amherst, and I Know This Road, as well as three collaborative efforts entitled River Of No Return (with long-time friend and musical associate Ray Legere), Williams Squared (with son JD Williams), and Something 'Bout You in Nashville (with partner Amy Gallatin). Roger has also been involved in CMH label's 'Pickin' On' series, where different musical genres are interpreted in the bluegrass vein. About Roger, Bluegrass Unlimited magazine has said: "Williams, like all great acoustic slide players, can be mellow and lingering or crisp and jaunty. He's also a very fine singer (with) more than a little of Merle Haggard in voice and emotion."

"Roger Williams is one bad-ass Dobro player."--Jim Chapdelaine, Engineer/Composer/Producer/Guitarist

JD Williams grew up steeped in the Williams family musical tradition, learning multiple instruments at a very early age thanks to his dad Roger Williams' influence. As an in-demand sideman and session player, JD has performed with various ensembles and musicians in Boston, New England and the greater New York City area, including the award-winning bluegrass band Southern Rail, the popular acoustic group The Hot Flashes, the acclaimed Syracuse songwriter duo The Cadleys, and Connecticut songwriter Nathan Day. Today this Berklee College of Music grad exhibits a youthful style all his own with jazz and blues influences, and the family on-stage chemistry is magic! He currently makes his home in Manhattan with his wife, Christine.
