Cecil and Linda Yancy sang together for the first time on a date on the banks of the Tennessee river. They have been singing together ever since. Yancy & Yancy sing full throated harmonies that emerge from souls with deep southern family roots. Both are native Alabamians and now call Memphis home.

They are joined by a band of gifted musicians who met at Visible Music College in Memphis. They formed the band The Good'Uns made up of zany young men who add their own flair to the music with Seth Sellers on mandolin and guitar, Harrison Bush on tenor guitar and banjo, Elbert Belk on fiddle, and James Littleton on percussion and bass.

Country, folk, blues, Neo-bluegrass, and Gospel can all be found in their music swirling around with distinctive vocal delivery. Both singer/songwriters, they bring to the stage the southern knack for storytelling and hospitality. Believing that the oral arts must be preserved they have hosted several "Storytelling" parties as well as hosted house concerts and perform at House Concerts. Their musical storytelling includes tales about an Appalacian ghost , the story of a grandmother's words to her grandson, and the story of a church on Sand Mountain called the Rock House. They have a wide range of covers as well as their original music. They play southern acoustic rock as well as country classics.

Y & Y play private events ranging from birthday parties to weddings, organizational meetings and fund-raisers.

Being from an agricultural background they have a set that is perfect for the farming community and Ag-related meetings.


Yancy & Yancy have performed their own blend of music together for over a decade, performing in such venues as Folk Alliance International 2012, The Memphis Zoo, The Ruffin Theater in Covington, The Memphis Farmer's Market, Trolley Nights, The Center for Southern Folk Lore, The River Arts Festival, Hard Rock Cafe Memphis, Otherlands, Levitt Shell and various festivals in the greater Memphis area. It is "grown-up Folk for grown-up folk".

Yancy and Yancy were friendly and professional under trying circumstances due to inclement weather. They are a talented group and were not rattled by the stage location or situation. We certainly hope to bring them back to our area in the future.
