July 8 – Brody Hunt & The Handfulls – An Asheville-area honky-tonk band, The Handfulls play a combination of classic tunes and originals by Brody Hunt styled in what Hunt calls country music’s “golden era.” A self-described retired freight-train hobo and collector of rare 78 rpm heritage music recordings, Hunt leads “shellac bashes” in Asheville. His prior appearance on campus with the Carolina Cud Chewers featured old-time string music, but with The Handfulls, Hunt, a guitarist, banjo player and vocalist, promises tunes in the style of country music legends George Jones and Merle Haggard.

Concerts on the Quad are free and family-friendly. Come picnic on the beautiful UNC Asheville Quad - bring a blanket or lawn chairs. July 15 – Che Apalache – This four-man “Latingrass” band, with musicians from North Carolina, Argentina and Mexico, has an album produced by Béla Fleck slated for release in August. Che Apalache began as a bluegrass band, but also features Latin rhythms as well as a cappella mountain gospel harmonies. Fiddler and multi-instrumentalist Joe Troop is the band’s founder – an N.C. native, he met his bandmates while living in Argentina and making a living teaching bluegrass and old-time music. Paul Barjau (banjo), Franco Martino (guitar) and Martin Bobrik (mandolin) combine with Troop to create an unusual blend – one authentic enough to have been awarded first place in the neo-traditional category at the Appalachian String Band Music Festival in Clifftop, West Virginia.
