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 three albums – “Trade Winds" (2012), "Southern Trees” (2014) and their new, eponymous EP (2018) – played to many festival crowds (Merlefest, Floydfest, Mountain Song at Sea, Bele Chere, Rooster Walk, Soulshine Fest), and performed alongside many greats (Leftover Salmon, Larry Keel, Acoustic Syndicate & more). They are a merry band of friends whose love & respect for each other bleeds out through the music.
