Gap Civil

Gap Civil is an old time band based in Sparta, NC with Caroline Beverley on guitar, Chris Johnson on banjo, Lucas Pasley on fiddle, Kyle Dean Smith on bass. Our music is rooted in the traditions of our region, a diamond-shaped area extending roughly from Sparta, Lowgap, Galax, and Whitetop. We formed the band to play at our local square dance, the Alleghany Jubilee, but we love playing for other dances and concerts in the region and trying our luck at the fiddlers conventions. If you've got a free Saturday, come on out to the Jubilee in Sparta - we always play the first Saturday of the month.

We'd love to hear from you.

Hardly a Civil Christmas

We are real excited to be releasing a Christmas CD that will hopefully be a bright spot for you in 2020. We wanted to make a hard-driving, heart wrenching CD that’ll make you look like you were holding the Christmas lights in your mouth when your cousin plugged them in. No gentle hammered dulcimers playing Silent Night on this CD! It’ll sound more like a sack full of old-time instruments fell out of Santa’s sleigh and crashed to the ground in the middle of a country christmas party. Hope you enjoy!
