Hometown: Chapel Hill, NC
The North Carolina-based Bucket Brothers – Logan and Casey Valleroy – have captivated audiences since 2012 with their sophisticated arrangements, seamless improvisation, and beyond-their-years mastery of jazz. Fans enthuse over their musicianship, composure, and stage presence. Both brothers display a depth of musical understanding and an ability to listen to one another that is rare at such a young age.
In early 2017, the Bucket Brothers were featured on the Woodsongs Old-Time Radio Hour, sharing the stage with Livingston Taylor and Rebecca Loebe. Woodsongs airs on over 500 radio stations worldwide and on PBS stations in millions of homes across America. The brothers capped 2016 with a Christmas Day appearance at the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC, joining jazz luminaries Chuck and Robert Redd and other leading jazz artists at the annual All-Star Christmas Day Jazz Jam. Other 2016 appearances included the LEAF Festival in Black Mountain, NC, the OcraFolk Festival on Ocracoke Island, and the Pocahontas County Opera House in Marlinton, WV. In 2013, when they were just 13 and 10, the brothers were profiled in North Carolina’s acclaimed Our State magazine. They also have appeared twice (2014 and 2016) on WUNC public radio’s “The State of Things.”
