Not one but TWO 5-piece American roots-music-based live acts this week!

Twin brothers Eric & Kyle Travers formed this 7-member rock/funk/soul band in 2012, and they've been standing out among the many great Asheville bands lately, between their dynamic live shows and last year's release A Way to Survive. They have a Friday night show at the Asheville Music Hall.

ROOTS & DORE Live Thursday, February 23rd at 4pm

Feb 21, 2017

Singer/guitarist Riyen Roots and harmonica master Kenny Dore get into a good, strong blues groove when they team up. Based in Asheville, they have a number of local appearances coming up in Waynesville, Hickory, Saluda, and Asheville. Roots & Dore's latest album features help from "Steady Rollin'" Bob Margolin and David Holt.

SALLY & GEORGE Live Friday, February 24TH at 11am

Feb 21, 2017

Joel "George" Timmons and Shelby "Sally" Means come together from the bands Sol Driven Train and Della Mae, respectively. After meeting at the 2012 Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion thanks to shared gigs there, the two sparked a close partnership both on and off stage (congratulate them on their engagement around here last July!) Their first album together was formed in Laramie, Charleston, and Nashville, with interesting stories for each. The names Sally and George? That's another story we'll get out of them this Friday.
