The Shade Trees are a bluegrass/country/folk duet group based out of Chattanooga, TN. The group consists of multi-instrumentalists Seth Hicks and Jessica Whaley. Both members were born and raised in Georgia. We started our collaboration in 2018 when we both started jamming some tunes in the lobby area of a local Georgia music store at the time. Since then we have curated a setlist consisting of a variety of styles and genres. Performing anything from bluegrass standards like Are you missing me by Jim and Jesse, to old rock hits like Long Cool Woman (in a Black Dress) by The Hollies, we have worked to create a large, full band sound with only two musicians on the stage.
