Nathan Evans Fox and Jackson Grimm are bringing their different shades of Appalachian folk music to Athens on Saturday night at Buvez. Fox, from Nashville, and Grimm, from Asheville, both harness their mountain roots to write songs that are both rooted in tradition and deeply personal to their creators. Fox’s new record Kindness is full of whiskey, longing and spare balladry, while Grimm (who also plays in The Bull Moose Party) takes a bluegrass approach to his introspective songwriting. Rounding out the night is a special surprise local guest who certainly does their part to keep classic Americana styles relevant today.
