Red Rover Booking and Isis Music Hall present The Asheville Opry. Inspired by local WNCW radio program “Country Gold”, the program features Western North Carolina artists performing classic country tunes from World War II to Watergate. Join us for an evening of Grand Ole Opry Style classic country hits performed by some of Asheville’s finest musicians in one of Asheville’s best live music venues!
A unique Southern American stew, equal parts folk bluegrass classic country and rock, packed with truth and performed with passion. Planefolk is the solo project of Asheville native Kevin Smith. Influences begin with the Appalachian sounds of bluegrass and old time. Then travels on with the rawness of rock and roll infused with heavy doses of classic country. All original songs inspired by songwriters such as Prine, Nelson, Springsteen and Cash.
Add all these ingredients together into a well seasoned cast iron pan and slow simmer to create a taste of the uniquely Southern American stew that is Planefolk.
Christy Lynn Band
Christy Lynn (vocals) and Ryan Schilling (guitar) have been writing songs together since the two met in 2011. They share a great appreciation for American roots music, taking influence from an eclectic mix of country, folk, and rock n' roll musicians. This doesn’t tie their style to a direct genre, but instead allows them to dance around any lines that might define them. Christy’s powerhouse voice goes from whiskey-soaked wail to honey-smooth tones in a note, while the songwriting is surprising and heart-wrenching. After leaving the West Coast on a one-way cross country tour, they found a true home in Asheville, North Carolina. Since relocating, the team has added fiddle player Kenan Hopkins and been hard at work writing new material and playing anywhere they can to build their faithful audience.
Gold Rose is Americana deluxe — it's American highway gospel. The band travels the Appalachian highways, combining crunchy guitar noise with folk, country and Americana stories. Songwriter Kevin Fuller explores territory of childhood angst and bitter loss while projecting the sonic swells of country and Americana music.
Our host, Lo Wolf, writes and performs from her Asheville, NC home. Her latest recording, Country Pop Hit, has been called "equal parts timeless and modern" and she infuses poetry, praise, and grit into her original compositions. She is a classically trained harpist gone folk singer, and so yankee she's southern.
