Knoxville quintet Cutthroat Shamrock return to Asheville on Sunday, Sept. 29 for a show at Jack of the Wood. 10 p.m., $7. The band describes itself as “Appalachian punk rock” but brings a rough-and-tumble Celtic sounds to its performances.
From a press release: “They hail from the land of blue smoke and white lightening, and manage to meld the traditions of Ireland, the rhythms of Appalachia and the bite of punk into every setting they invoke. They are five talents united in their passion for music, drink and mischief, and promise to destroy the burden of musical monotony. They are Cutthroat Shamrock and they are paving the way in Appalachian Celtic Punk.”
