Inspired by their own influences and the roots of traditional and newgrass music, North Carolina-based Unspoken Tradition brings a sound that is both impassioned and nostalgic, hard-driving and sincere. Their 2020-21 singles have all charted in the Bluegrass Today top 20, including “California” “Irons in the Fire” and “Carolina and Tennessee.

The band has earned a fervent following in the Southeast, selling out shows in Asheville as well as the legendary Station Inn in Nashville. They have also performed twice on the coveted Watson (main stage) at MerleFest. With heavy airplay on Sirius XM’s Bluegrass Junction and growing streaming numbers, Unspoken Tradition is a rising voice of a new generation of roots music artists. Their debut recording, Simple Little Town (2013) saw quick success in radio and with tastemakers. Their follow-up release, Miles Between was featured on the nationally syndicated NPR show The World Cafe.

The Greybirds is a rockn'roll band in the classic sense. The band formed in Asheville and has developed an engaging live show with a focus on songwriting, harmony singing, and musical freedom. The members of the the Greybirds have played in bands in New York, Seattle, Atlanta, Virginia and Nashville. The band's sound harkens back to the electrified music that emerged after the folk boom of the early 1960s.
