Our tour bus will be sponsored by In more than 40 U.S. cities this year! 

“I’d like to think that Asheville is our home voice,” [Woody] Platt told the Hendersonville Times-News. “(Concert-goers) can expect to hear a lot of youthful, fiery bluegrass that has our own style attached to it: gospel, a capella, instrumental. All around (it’s) pretty entertaining.”

You can find our tour dates here - come check out the tour bus!
