The Resonant Rogues journey through a variety of folk traditions. With their band, Asheville songwriters Keith Smith (guitar, percussion, vocals) and Sparrow Pants (accordion, banjo, vocals) blend Balkan, klezmer and Gypsy music with hot jazz and old-time mountain standards. The adventurous group will take these roots music explorations across the country this summer, on a two-month tour stops in Colorado, Nevada, California and the Northwest. The Rogues play a tour-kickoff show at the Odditorium on Wednesday, June 26, at 9 p.m. Spirited jug band Carolina Catskins opens. $5. http://www.ashevilleodditorium.com. — Ami Worthen
