A delicious stew of rock, bluegrass, funk, psychedelia, country, folk & blues.
For years, an Asheville bluegrass favorite (voted one of WNC’s top-3 bluegrass bands by Mountain Xpress readers from 2010-2013), Sanctum Sully has reemerged as a 6-piece electrified unit that combines their many influences to form a unique & authentic sound. From frantic bluegrass licks to spaced-out ambient rock…Sanctum Sully churns it out, straight from the heart.
Originally formed in 2008, SS has put out two albums (2012’s “Trade Winds” and 2014’s “Southern Trees”), played to many festival crowds (Merlefest, Floydfest, Mountain Song at Sea, Bele Chere, Rooster Walk, Soulshine Fest), and performed along side their own heroes from time to time (Leftover Salmon, Larry Keel, Acoustic Syndicate & more). They are a merry band of friends who’s love & respect for each other bleeds out through the music.
