WellStrung: The WellStrung Band had its birth in the summer of 2011 when Rachel Friday, longing for her Atlanta based old-time bands, placed an advertisement inviting musical enthusiasts to a weekly jam at the Pine Street gazebo. As the summer rolled along, many came and went, but a faithful core of four returned and began crafting a sound all their own. Old-time and bluegrass standards were played, but occasionally an unexpected Dylan, Beatles, or Peter Rowan tune would emerge and gain a new voice from the traditional Appalachian instruments: mandolin, banjo, bass fiddle, guitar and harmonica. It wasn't long before WellStrung had gathered a loyal following who wanted their unique Appalachian sound.
