Deep in the Southern Appalachians, between the Blue Ridge and the Great Smokey Mountains lies the city of Asheville, North Carolina. It's been a few years since I've visited Asheville, but I've always enjoyed my trips there. Nestled into the surrounding mountains, Asheville is an up-scale, modern city populated by middle and upper-middle class corporate workers. Downtown boasts lots of arts, food, and music festivals throughout the year. Not your normal Appalachian city.
The Peg Twisters are an old-time band based in Asheville. Like their city, they have a sound that is a little more refined and polished. Dona Cavanagh's bright, light-handed fiddle is accompanied by the super-clean banjo of Bob Gregory and the smooth rhythm guitar of Jerry Sutton.
Smooth and gentrified - like fine sippin' whiskey.
