Swannanoa is a five piece band based out of Johnson City, Tennessee. The band has put together an energetic recipe of Bluegrass and modern Old-Time music sure to entertain audiences of all ages. All members of Swannanoa are seasoned, experienced musicians having toured and recorded with various groups in the past. Individual members have played the Grand Ole Opry (with Ralph Stanley), written a song that charted at number 12 on the national Bluegrass Charts, won the 2016 Rockygrass Banjo competition, and won the SPBGMA International Bluegrass Band Competition. Swannanoa is excited to share its own unique blend of Bluegrass and Old-Time.
Every Tuesday evening Isis presents our Tuesday Bluegrass Sessions. The sessions are hosted each week by a local bluegrass musician with friends or a band. Following the host band, Bluegrass musicians from the Asheville area gather on stage to jam in an open session. Occasionally, we feature a touring band that will perform prior to the open session and help co-host the jam. It's always a great evening of music and community.
