Apache Relay at The Orange Peel on Thursday

Apache Relay at The Orange Peel on Thursday-attachment0

Nashville Scene called roots-rockers The Apache Relay “Music City’s answer to Mumford and Sons,” which may or may not win points with the Asheville audience. What will win points is the band’s passionate performance, driving percussion, acoustic instrumentation filtered through rock savvy, and (possibly) fiddler Kellen Wenrich awesome red hair. (It’s also altogether possible that even Mumford fans would have to admit that Apache Relay packs more hook and grit into a song than the Brit-folkies do.)

Apache Relay plays The Orange Peel on Thursday, Oct. 13 as support for G. Love.

It’s been a year and a half since G. Love was last in Asheville. Since then, he recorded Fixin’ To Die at Echo Mountain with the help of The Avett Brothers.

Expect harmonica, blues guitar and G. Love’s laid back hip-hop-meets-folk delivery. And a trademark fedora. The show starts at 8 p.m., tickets are $20 advance or $25 at the door.
