Yellow Feather is an Americana/Country band hailing from Old Fort, NC.

Band Members

Hunter Begley- Guitar, Vocal

Shortly after picking up the acoustic guitar, Hunter took his eyes off the road too long and drifted into an original song in the oncoming lane.  He found love not long after, and soon found something else. That “something else” surely broke his heart. Fortunately he’s no quitter and has since had his heart broken enough times to write a country album.

Casey Kristofferson- Vocal

Casey is a classically trained musician and ballet dancer. Starting her musical life as a child with her family Casey has been playing, singing, and writing music all her life.  She is now co writing with Hunter Begley, and accompanying Yellow Feather with vocals and harmonies. 

Charlie Willis- Lap Steel

Born in Lexington, Charlie started playing drums at age 12 before quickly switching to guitar to explore bluegrass and folk music. After moving to the Asheville area in 2013, Charlie took up dobro and started playing with Hunter Begely. In 2017, his haunting slide guitar work landed him in Yellow Feather.

" We're leaving back porch weather all too quickly here in the Northeast. For that one last nice day that I just know we'll have, Old Fort, NC-based Yellow Feather has "Lucille." Their debut album, And Gold, drops on December 1st but until then, take this sun-dappled, devil-may-care lover's spat. The song has a cozy rhythm, rueful pedal steel, and the kind of hang-dog lyrics that make you chuckle and reach for a beer. Maybe once we kill the six-pack, you can help me find a back porch in New York City to listen to the full album on."    - No Depression

'Lucille' is one of twelve songs on the recently released 'And Gold' debut album. The album is a melting pot of gorgeous Americana rooted music, where vocal duties are shared, melodic hooks are a constant feature and the band are just so good. Like featured song = Love the album!  - Beehive Candy


"All-around, Casey Kristofferson and Yellow Feather seem to be a very talented band, who can not only put on a great live performance, (which I have watched on YouTube) but also record a very well-done, thoughtful and creative studio album. "And Gold" is an album that any Country-Folk-Americana lover should listen to and add to their collection."  - Jam Band Purist
