Colin & Caroline - 12:00 to 1:00
Born and raised in Richmond, Virginia the two grew up with a foundation and love for music which helped to drive their passions as musicians. Colin and Caroline attended high school together, and after years of pursuing music in different directions, they were reconnected at a local spot in their hometown. They collaborated on several covers, turning them into duets and adding a unique spin to songs of other artists. From there, they began co-writing their own original songs, growing together in lyrics, sound, and performance. What started as two individual solo artists, has since emerged the Acoustic Folk duo of "Colin & Caroline".
Colin & Caroline's heart-warming harmonies, original lyrics, and blend of creative covers first grabbed the attention of many in Central Virginia alone. Several of their original songs (including "More Than Gravity", "Fireflies, and "Like Home") have been featured on popular playlists curated by Spotify, which has spread the presence of Colin & Caroline worldwide. "More Than Gravity" has received over 13 million plays since release in 2014, and it's placement in the Netflix original series "13 Reasons Why." Colin & Caroline look forward to continuing to grow as artists, and sharing their music with audiences both new and old.
