Yancy & Yancy / Press

“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. - Karen B”

"Yancy & Yancy and The Good'Uns are plowing through the sound waves of the Mid-South, and have been all year. They are one of the busiest Memphis Folk bands out there, and their sound is unique and considered to be in the "Boomer Americana" style. If you have heard any of their songs, I think you would agree that you just want to hear more and more."

“Local band Yancy & Yancy and The Good’Uns, featuring folk duet Cecil and Linda Yancy and their merry band of musicians — Harrison Bush, Elbert Belk IV, and Seth Sellars — were the headliners for entertainment at the Bartlett Station Farmers Market Saturday. Bush, Belk and Sellars (The Good’Uns) added to the band’s folk sound, sharing their talents on mandolin, fiddle, tenor guitar and slide. Cecil and Linda play acoustic guitars, performing a mix of original songs and covers. Band percussionist James Littleton wasn’t present for the gig. The Yancys have been singing together for more than a decade. They like to refer to their music as “boomer Americana,” explaining that they sing of life experiences. Their mountain melodies, Memphis blues and country sound provided the entertainment as shoppers came out for fresh, local produce offered at the Saturday market. The weather was perfect and made for a great day for an outdoor concert. ”

“A sound that embarked from a date on the Tennessee River has given us the unique duo of Cecil and Linda Yancy. Their music spins witty tales, strong harmonies and haunting melodies to create a tasty blend of Americana and Memphis Music! ! So, clap your hands, stomp your feet & let's have a rockin' good time!”

"When you think about the title, "Devil Whipping His Wife," it causes images of the Halloween season to dance in whirling, demonic scenes in your mind, with a backdrop of searing flames, but even though that is not the case with this title, it is not far from the reality that the music video with this name, depicts. ""The Devil Whipping His Wife" music video is a very thought provoking work of art, written and performed by Linda and Cecil Yancy of the singing duo, "Yancy & Yancy." Linda describes their type of music to be 'Boomer Americana,'"

"Thier voices are strong, and the tight harmony swirled and curled...I was a little embarrassed at myself, when I realized I was so under their spell, that I was literally clasping my hands up against my throat, my head cocked to one side, and I had a high school giddy smile on my face!"
