Simchock<br/> It's been nearly four years since Son Volt passed through Asheville, delivering a solid performance at The Orange Peel back in April of 2013. This time around, the band is switching venue gears a bit, and will be gracing the stage at the more-intimate cross-town music hall, The Grey Eagle. With a capacity of half of what The Peel holds, this is guaranteed to present a totally different atmosphere for band leader Jay Farrar and his compatriots, not to mention their fans.

Son Volt's next studio album, Notes Of Blue, will be released on February 17th, giving everyone about a month to warm up to their new material. The album can be pre-ordered HERE. Says Farrar of the latest effort...

“For years I’ve been drawn to the passion, common struggle and possibility for redemption that’s always been a part of the blues. Everyone has to pay the rent and get along with their significant others, so many of the themes are universal. For me, the blues fills that void that's there for religion, really. That's the place I turn to be lifted up.”

Sounds to us like renowned vibe of The Grey Eagle will be a perfect match for Farrar's interpretation of the blues, not to mention everything else he and the band have added to their repertoire over the years.

At the time of this writing, tickets are still available (surprisingly!). No doubt, this will be a sold-out show, so fans would be wise to secure their tickets sooner rather than later. Who knows when we'll again get such a special opportunity to see such a special band in such a special venue?
