The Appalucians play music from the mountains of Western North Carolina, featuring spirited songwriting, tight harmonies, and a layered interplay between dobro, guitars, bass, and banjo. The band is the musical union of two couples Jay Brown and Aditi Sethi  (Shantaavani, Aditi and Jay) and Angie Heimann and Cas Sochacki (The Blushin’ Roulettes) who met at their kids’ preschool, gradually realized their seemingly cosmic musical alignment, and decided they better start a band. Their debut album “Bright Hills,” released in early summer 2018, has flavors of mountain folk and barroom twang.
