The Scenic Roots

The Scenic Roots

 Asheville, North Carolina, USA

Fortified Folk...we're not sure that's a real genre, but it's what happens when you put four songwriters in one room with a crazy drummer. We play everything from dirty Delta Blues to Honky Tonk to Rockgrass jams that would make Widespread blush. As they like to say, you'll grow some Scenic Roots!


At first, we thought Josh was a mandolin player, taking lessons with the guy down the street...but one New Year's Eve on a lake in western North Carolina, he said 'Let's try this one'...and that was it - the alchemy emerged.

Set List

Typical set list ranges from 12-14 songs a little over an hour and a half length. First set is more acoustic and low-key in nature while the second set is much more rockin'!

We'll typically do two sets and a few encores, but have been known to pull out three full sets, depending on the gig.
