Enjoy popular Hilton Head Island band Cranford & Sons while you still can.
As of this fall, the quartet will drop the band name they've performed under for several years, in favor of a new name -- Cranford Hollow, according to their Facebook page.
"We will be operating as Cranford & Sons until almost October," a post on the new page read. "... (D)ue to legal, business and contractual items, (that name) will remain until almost October. Our last official Hilton Head Island show as Cranford & Sons will be Sept. 20 at Skull Creek Boathouse for their Full Moon Party."
The name change corresponds with the upcoming release of their new full-length album, also slated for October, but had nothing to do with any legal action brought against the local band by the platinum-selling, Grammy award-winning English folk quartet Mumford & Sons, frontman John Cranford said last month.
"I wish that were the case," Cranford told The Island Packet and The Beaufort Gazette. "That would have made for some awesome publicity. What we did encounter was people coming to our shows thinking we were Mumford & Sons."
Cranford Hollow was one of several names the band considered, along with Cranford & Co., Cranford Creek, Cranford Manor, the band said.
The band's upcoming shows include a performance Aug. 1 at The Big Bamboo Cafe with Atlanta country rock band Connor Christian and Southern Gothic.
