Virtuoso finger-style guitarist Reverend Peyton — accompanied by his wife Breezy Peyton on washboard and his cousin “Cuz” Persinger, whose drumkit includes a five-gallon bucket—delivered a frenzied assault of high-energy country-blues to a packed crowd at Jack of the Wood Friday night. The setlist included new work from the upcoming album as well as hits from their current release, “Peyton on Patton.”
Saturday night the Brown County, Ind., trio will play at Jack of Hearts in Weaverville. The pair of shows mark the band’s first visit to the Asheville area. Friday night they pinkie-swore with the crowd that it won’t be their last.
