The Bashful Youngens are an Americana duo out of Champaign, Illinois featuring Carrie Chandler-Harrison (mandolin, guitar, vocals) and Aaron Short (harmonica, guitar, vocals). Carrie and Aaron met and became friends while in college after growing up in neighboring towns. They quickly learned they shared a similar love of music and immediately began playing covers together just for fun at open mics. They soon realized they wanted to concentrate more on writing their own songs and released their debut album in February 2016. Their style blends traditional folk, alternative country, and roots while incorporating their own unique musicality for an eclectic mix. Their love of writing music together is clearly seen and heard in their live performances and studio recordings. Each shines on their own, and together their voices blend in seemingly effortless harmonies. Their genuine, charming style, well-crafted songs, powerful rhythms and harmonies provide a sound that reaches a broad base of fans. In march of 2017 they released their EP “inflorescent”, which includes their acclaimed single “Hand in Mine”.
