Known across western North Carolina and beyond for their spirited performances, Asheville acoustic supergroup Songs From the Road Band promises a thrilling afternoon of music on Saturday & Sunday March 6th & 7th Saturday, postponed from January 9th.
The band will take to the outdoor stage at One World Brewing West for an event they’ve dubbed Asheville Winter Grass – a rare collaborative performance with Acoustic Syndicate lead vocalist Steve “Big Daddy” McMurry.
As a founding member of the influential newgrass band Acoustic Syndicate, Steve “Big Daddy” McMurry has penned songs for nine albums and performed coast to coast – at events like Bonnaroo, Telluride Bluegrass Festival, MerleFest, Farm Aid, and many more. He has also fronted popular side projects, such as Big Daddy Bluegrass Band and Big Blue. A sixth generation farmer from Cleveland County, McMurry continues to dig into his heritage of music and farming.
In addition to Humphrey – a Grammy and IBMA award winner – Songs From the Road Band features the talents of award-winning contest mandolin player Mark Schimick, founding member and smooth lead vocalist Sam Wharton, two-time National Fiddle Champion James Schlender, and acclaimed young banjoist Gabe Epstein. “When it comes to harmony singing, Mark and Sam have practically unlimited range,” continues Humphrey. “When you add Big Daddy’s strong lead vocals to that mix, it’s very powerful.”
Located on Haywood Road in West Asheville and easily accessible from I-26, One World Brewing West is the perfect setting to enjoy live music safely.
Asheville Winter Grass takes place outdoors with spaced-out tables and plenty of room for distancing. Concert-goers are encouraged to dress accordingly, though outdoor heaters will be provided. A food truck will be on hand for the proceedings. One World follows all COVID-19 precautions to ensure everyone’s safety while enjoying the show.
Though the weather may be chilly, the music at Asheville Winter Grass will be anything but. “This show is high-energy and full of fiery pickin’,” says Humphrey. Fans can expect a diverse set of McMurry’s original songs – alongside those from Songs From the Road Band, whose latest single “Molasses” is currently climbing the Bluegrass Today Grassicana charts. “We’ll also be including some fan favorite cover songs,” concludes Humphrey, “and we hope to see you on Saturday, January 9th!”
