The Driftless area of the American Midwest escaped damage by glaciers during the last glaciation.  It was a refuge, allowing resident flora and fauna to thrive while those in surrounding areas were decimated by large-scale upheaval.  This is what music is for Chattanooga based band Megan Saunders and The Driftless; a sanctuary from the sometimes rough waters of every day life.  Together with Jason Reed (guitar) and Ashley Cofield (violin), Megan’s songs build a sense of story and place, with a sound that spans playful and luminous to sultry and haunting, all the while keeping a foot in American roots music.  Together they create a joyous space, a refuge that you can share.  As Tom Miller (concert programmer) explains, “The plaintive original melodies of Megan Saunders and The Driftless can take you to an earthy, vintage, dreamlike setting. They will hold you there like a feast of comfort food with no bones to pick or rinds to peel or bitter tastes to distract – seamless pleasure.”
