Wed 9/12 @ 7PM
Buenos Aires-based quartet Che Apalache features American, Mexican and Argentinian members. It began when North Carolina fiddler Joe Troop moved to Argentina in 2010 and recruited three of his students to play banjo, guitar and mandolin.
While the band’s roots are in the bluegrass music Troop brought with him from North Carolina, the other members added their Latin music influences to create a sound that draws on tight instrumentals and vocal harmonies. They called their debut album Latingrass, a term which could easily be applied to their music. A lot of bands like to say their music is different, but that’s rarely true. Che Apalache can say that for real.
They’ll be performing at Peninsula’s G.A.R. Hall as part of its Voices in the Valley series. Tickets are $12 in advance, $15 at the door.
