Gene and Gayla and the Fireflies play new roots music—modern folk tinged with bluegrass and country. Gene Mills has won over 20 country, folk, and instrumental songwriting awards and is an accomplished flatpicking guitarist. Gayla Mills’ bass playing—solid, rhythmic, and melodic—is accompanied by her tender harmonies. Mandolinist Barry Lawson, with a decade of experience in the Richmond acoustic music scene, appears on both of Gene and Gayla’s albums. Multi-instrumentalist Kent Ippolito has performed and recorded with numerous artists since the 1980s and plays dobro and clawhammer banjo with the Fireflies. The band is known for both its musicianship and its humor.
