It’s not too surprising that singer-songwriter Aaron Burdett won top honors from Our State magazine for his song “Going Home to Carolina.” Burdett’s thoughtful, acoustic-driven take on Southern Americana is a fitting soundtrack for life in the Blue Ridge Mountains. With the addition of his four-piece band, he creates music that is deeply rooted in the region — with potential to cross state lines. The same might be said of the new Asheville-based Americana/bluegrass band, Tellico. The rootsy outfit is known both for its instrumental prowess and “hard-edged yet nostalgic themes.” The two bands will perform at Isis Restaurant & Music Hall on Thursday, July 17, at 8 p.m. $10/$12.
