About
Hope Griffin Music is an Asheville, NC based Folk/Acoustic band offering solo, duo, trio, and full band options for your special event. Our show soulfully fuses acoustic guitar, cello, and angelic harmonies together to provide our own thoughtful new interpretations of beloved cover songs, as well as our own stirring Folk/Americana originals. We cater our sound to fit any atmosphere, carefully selecting songs from our extensive repertoire to create the perfect ambiance for you. Professionalism, client satisfaction, communication, and FUN are our highest priorities when handling your event!

Our main members include Alaska-Born singer/songwriter, vocalist, and guitarist Hope Griffin, and remarkably talented cellist/flutist Jamie Leigh O'Neil. We have been a dynamic duo since 2014, and together won the title of "Best Acoustic/Folk Band" in all of Western North Carolina in 2016, 2017, & 2018! With both bachelors and masters degrees in classical music and performance, we have years of experience playing for a multitude of different events and venues, including weddings, corporate events, private parties, engagement parties, vineyards, wineries, long term care facilities, festivals, breweries, and more. We pride ourselves on our ability to fit in anywhere.

Though we are Asheville based, we love to travel! We primarily stay within the Southeast USA, but can make exceptions, especially if we are planning tour near you. As a band, we also know that options are important to you. We play quite frequently with several other talented musicians in our area, and can easily add them to our show depending on our clients needs. Violin, flute, electric guitar, drums, bass, horns - just ask!

With a unique blend of folk, blues, and jazzy duets, Hope Griffin Music is ready to make your event the best it can be! Steve Wildsmith from The Daily Times writes: "In her capable hands, [the guitar] becomes an expression of longing, love, sorrow, joy and heartache, and when her duo partner, Jamie Leigh, adds in cello parts...the results are transcendent ones."

Hope Griffin is all of the above and then some! I would highly, highly recommend her! She was entertaining, professional, talented, accommodating and most of all, very kind and easy to work with. Also has an excellent accompaniment with cellist Jamie Leigh Bennett!

Hope was honest about what she could and could not do, and about the scheduling. Once arrangements were made, she was prompt, early actually, and did a great job.
