Fin Dog is an acoustic string band based in the Asheville area. Established in 2015, Fin Dog avoids the bluegrass label that is so easily applied to a band with acoustic instrumentation. While they do play some traditional bluegrass songs, their original material and selective covers show that they cover a wide variety of music far from the traditional string band repertoire. Fin Dog delivers an up-tempo, high energy show that doesn’t take itself too seriously. Fin Dog features Ryan Stockham on banjo, Nick Fierstos on mandolin, Brett Tingley on bass, and Adam Rettig on guitar.
