Swayback Sisters 

When: Fri., July 13, 7-9 p.m. 2012
Price: Free, donations accepted

Before Mary Ellen Bush joined the already-formed Swayback Sisters, she was in Ménage. While both Asheville bands share respectable three-way harmonies and a love of acoustic instruments, Swayback's traditionalism contrasts sharply with Ménage's pop-fused folk. Yet the newer band's fidelity for old-time sometimes leads to high-octane rollicks with more "Long Tall Sally" and less "Beautiful Brown Eyes." With Asheville increasingly becoming a town of two minds—the traditional music camp and the experimental kids—Swayback is a strong champion for the former model. The string trio ought to work well in Bynum, then, an old mill town with a burgeoning no-amps-allowed summer music series. —Corbie Hill
