Nashville-based bluegrass collective Lonesome River Band has been performing for more than 30 years. The group joined Steve Martin on the “Late Show with David Letterman,” it’s played the Grand Ole Opry along with numerous festivals and has taken home awards such as an IBMA for the song “Angeline the Baker.” But when it came to releasing Turn on a Dime, the band’s first studio album in four years (on Arden’s Mountain Home Music label), the group decided to hold that celebration in Asheville. “With Turn on a Dime, Lonesome River Band delivers the kind of album that made them an iconic band who pioneered and still shapes the modern bluegrass sound,” says a press release. The launch party takes place at Isis Restaurant & Music Hall on Saturday, Nov. 1, at 9 p.m. $15 advance/$18 at the door. isisasheville.com. Photo by Sandlin Gaither
