Avery County is committed to the sound and image of old school “Baltimore Barroom” bluegrass with original and obscure material, and in-your-face, kick-you-in-the-teeth stage shows. Not to mention they are young, charming and good looking.
Avery County is a new touring band of seasoned professional musicians playing in the style of pioneers like Charlie Moore, Red Allen, Buzz Busby, Walter Hensley and Dee Gunter; and bringing back the entertainment factor in bluegrass music. And the spirit of Baltimore Bar room bluegrass where good women and better music was king. The band took its name from the 1978 title of a Charlie Moore album, citing their strong influence from Charlie Moore.
