Tellico

Join us at the Sierra Nevada Taproom in Mills River on Saturday, September 1st from 7pm to 9:30pm for a free show with Tellico.

Firmly planted in Asheville NC’s thriving roots music scene, Tellico is well schooled in bluegrass but with an unbridled organic “Appalachiacana” sound, combining some of the finest voices, songs and instrumental prowess in western North Carolina and beyond. Anya Hinkle and Stig Stiglets’ committed, authentic vocals are alloyed with Aaron Ballance’s flowing and soaring dobro and Jed Willis’s textured and expressive mandolin, rooted in the mountain music they grew up with while pushing tradition into a modern Americana sound aesthetic.

The Georgia Flood

Join us at the Sierra Nevada Taproom in Mills River on Sunday, September 2nd from 6:30pm to 9:00pm for a free show with The Georgia Flood.

Groove-heavy and Genre-bending, The Georgia Flood’s music has evolved over the years. Their new album, People Like Ourselves, draws on indelible melodies, clever lyrics, and an infectious energy; weaving together an EP that hits all the right notes. The Atlanta based duo, Lane Kelly and Brooks Mason, are brothers who began playing when they were seven and nine years old respectively. Hustling birthday parties and family reunions the brothers changed sounds numerous times through their teens. Drawing on their exploration of numerous genres, their songwriting channels classic guitar driving riffs with modern pop sensibilities.
