Blacksburg native Anya Hinkle returns for a special concert with her Asheville, NC-based band Tellico. Tellico is a product of Asheville’s thriving roots music scene, its members well schooled in bluegrass but with an unbridled, organic “Appalachiacana” style. Their distinctive sound combines some of the most authentic voices, compelling songs and talented instrumentalists in North Carolina and beyond.
Tickets are $20 per person, with a portion of the proceeds benefiting the Blacksburg Museum & Cultural Foundation. Light refreshments will be provided, beer & wine will be available for purchase. Space is limited, so purchase your ticket today!
Tellico features the singing and songwriting of Anya Hinkle (guitar, fiddle) and Stig Stiglets (bass, harmonica), with Aaron Ballance on dobro and Jed Willis on mandolin and clawhammer banjo. Tellico independently released their debut album Relics and Roses in 2015 with a sophomore release planned for 2018. Tour highlights include appearances at MerleFest, Gettysburg Bluegrass Festival, Bristol Rhythm and Roots, WUNC Back Porch, IBMA Bluegrass Ramble, Jammin’ at Hippie Jack’s, Appaloosa Festival, as well as many concert series, live music venues and listening rooms, across the Southeast.
“Tellico threads the needle of top-notch musicianship and compelling songwriting while simultaneously honoring their forebears and making music that is fresh and new. Their songwriting crafts an acoustic soundscape of Appalachian daydreams that stack up to the works of John Hartford, Emmylou Harris and the Avett Brothers.” -- Joe Kendrick, WNCW FM, Spindale, NC
