rock, and folk. This New England group has managed to create a unique sound that is distinctly their own yet remains rooted in the heart of Appalachia. Drawing from a repertoire of traditional tunes, original material, and covers, this band combines traditional music of Appalachians with many “modern” influences like The Band, Old Crow Medicine Show, The Grateful Dead, Norman Blake, and The Avett Brothers.
Since forming in the Spring of 2005, Appalachian Still has already seen success typically associated with more mature bands, due in large part to their undying love of the music and ability to connect with their audience. After busking on the streets of Northampton and honing their chops together in local coffee shops and bars, the band has picked up additional musicians along the way and graduated to the regional circuit, playing venues and festivals throughout the Greater New England area and beyond. Their songs have been featured on radio stations from Vermont to Georgia.
With over 25,000 listens on MySpace, awards under their belt, and a fan-base that continues to grow with each appearance, this band is steaming full speed ahead. For these boys, it’s all about the music and they show no signs of slowing down.
