Award: Best Band You've Never Heard Of
Year Won: 2014
Pick: Editor's Pick
Appalucia may be new to you, but the band’s ancestors have been here for centuries. Members claim direct genealogy to German settlers in the Appalachian Mountains and an 1800s militia that was neither Union nor Confederate. The band itself has been active for a few years, slowly building a following as a rollicking acoustic act you might stumble upon at Snug Harbor.
