At the heart of Grits & Soul are Anna Kline and John Looney. For over seven years now, they have logged thousands of highway miles and hundreds of yearly performances, spreading the gospel of Southern sound. Known for their seamless harmonies and engaging stage performances, this mandolin and guitar duo has the experience and repertoire to provide you and your guests with a one-of-a-kind event experience.

Grits & Soul have not only performed at regional festivals throughout the Southeast and Europe, but also weddings, private parties, and corporate events of all shapes and sizes. These include "hush hush" celebrity parties, as well as events and gigs at the Biltmore Estate, Grove Park Inn, The Alluvian, and Blackberry Farms. In August 2017, Grits & Soul appeared on an episode of Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern, which featured the Daniel Boone Wilderness Trail in Kentucky.

Please visit the Grits & Soul website for videos and more.

Their repertoire includes original and cover tunes, traditional ceremony favorites, bluegrass standards and old-time instrumentals, classic country, jazz and swing, and some Delta blues. They approach every gig as an opportunity to reflect the people behind it, and want you to have a unique and fun event that stands out just like you do!

They are absolutely amazing!! My guests talked all night long about our ceremony music and how beautiful it sounded. Anna was a pleasure to work with when deciding on ceremony music and provided helpful input to assist me with making decisions. They arrived promptly. They were very professional and SO talented. I highly recommend Grits & Soul.

Grits & Soul is top notch! I cannot say enough and there's not enough stars to reflect the talent they have. We booked Grits & Soul for an outside rehearsal dinner BBQ by the river. Thier experience and professionalism was evident upon our first interaction. They provided the perfect music for every mood of the evening, it was amazing at how in tune, litteraly, with the the guests they are. They added the perfect background music for our event and made it so easy for us! They played requests for guests without hesitation. We will definitely be using Grits & Soul again, unless they're booked at the Oprey, they ARE that good!
