Traditionally Untraditional...or maybe it's untraditionally traditional. Bluegrass bands struggle daily with this handle that has been used to describe their music and their style - especially bands claiming Asheville, North Carolina as home base. Sanctum Sully thankfully deviates mightily from said agenda. While fully capable of wrangling a helluva version of "John Hardy" they'd much prefer to punch you in the gut with potent and powerfully written original songs.

3 part harmonies, blues based guitar riffs, ringer of a mandolin, and one helluva beer drinkin crowd, and you've got yourself a 'Sully' show. Foot stompin good times and grassed up versions of blues, rock, and jamband tunes could sneak their way between a unique array of originals in their somewhat unpredictable sets.

Sanctum Sully's strengths are many and their vices just as plentiful, however, your ears will delight in NOT hearing just another Asheville bluegrass band. You'll actually EXPERIENCE the music, and are bound to get yourself at least a buzz by osmosis from their devoted - if somewhat rowdy - foot stompin followin'.
