About The Palmetto Rose Band
The Palmetto Rose Band sprang forth from the Bluegrass traditions of the South Carolina lowcountry in 2017. The band will delight you with well known songs from the worlds of Bluegrass, Country, Folk and Americana traditions as well as an occasional catchy original tune!
The primary musical line-up consists of Nicole Mcloud on lead vocals and banjo, Jeff Goller on Dobro and vocals, Ken Coker on guitar and vocals, Fred Schroeder on banjo and vocals, and Rick Hammrick on upright bass.
The songs feel immediately recognizable and make you want to sing along as well as think, and relate to the lives and the stories the songs tell. Their music has been described as informal as “a comfortable pair of jeans”, and yet respectful of the origins and roots of the music they play.

About The Palmetto Rose
The Palmetto Rose is a tradition unique to the South Carolina Lowcountry and Southern Coastal regions. The Palmetto Rose is a hand woven flower made from the fronds of South Carolina’s official tree – the Palmetto tree.
There are many stories about the origins of the Palmetto Rose, which is thought to go back to Civil War times. One tradition holds that southern ladies would make and give a Palmetto Rose to their lovers to keep them safe during the war.
Eventually, the Palmetto Rose came to symbolize eternal, everlasting love. They are still lovingly made in the South Carolina Lowcountry, and still symbolize the blending of nature and love.
