For the month of September, Acoustic Asheville is spotlighting artists on the bill for Asheville Barnaroo. The festival takes place Friday-Sunday, Sept. 28-30 at Franny’s Farm in Leicester and will benefit Asheville Music School.
The first artist on the bill to be featured here is local singer-songwriter Aaron Burdett. He’s released seven albums over the last 13 years and has built a following as his sound crossed a variety of genres. His style lends itself to folk but also delves into country, bluegrass and blues. He combines that with songwriting that feels more like storytelling.
Burdett recently gave a solo performance of five songs at The Grey Eagle in advance of his full band set on Friday, Sept. 28, at Barnaroo.
“Pennies on the Tracks”
“Something Out of Nothing”
“Can’t Carry the Load”
“At the End of the Day”
