The frontman for Asheville band the Ahleuchatistas has a strikingly different sound on his new solo release Undertaker Please Drive Slow.

Stephen Houseworth

“Want to hear the melting pot that’s the ongoing cultural experiment known as the United States of America? Then you should listen to the Resonant Rogues. The Asheville, N.C., group blends Balkan, klezmer, gypsy, hot jazz and old-time influences to create a genre-blending music that couldn’t happen anywhere else.” –Chris Bopst of Style Weekly. They have a few gigs in their hometown and in Charlotte before hightailing it to Colorado for much of December.
