Gap Civil

Formed in 2017, Gap Civil is a hard-driving oldtime and heart-breaking traditional country band based in Sparta, NC with Caroline Noel Beverley on guitar, Chris Johnson on banjo, Lucas Pasley on fiddle, Kyle Dean Smith on bass. Our music is rooted in the oldtime traditions of our region, a diamond-shaped area extending roughly from Sparta, Lowgap, Galax, and Whitetop. We also perform traditional country and original tunes and songs. Check out our upcoming shows and come on out and join us!

The band name Gap Civil comes from an old name for the town of Sparta, NC. Read more about that here or come to one of our shows and ask Chris to tell you about it...he loves to talk history!
